10 Days in the Towers

The 10 Days in The Towers Festival brings the historic North Queensland town of Charters Towers to life in a very unique way. Staged during April each year, 10 Days in The Towers is a celebration of many things.

But the 10 Days in The Towers is not only a country music festival - it is so much more than that. Locals and visitors also enjoy line dancing, bush poetry, talent quests, street procession, busking competition, ghost tales and historic tours during the period of the festival which includes the Country Music Festival.
