There's nothing for 400 km between Mount Surprise & Charters Towers - not a single town, just a roadhouse at The Lynd Junction & even that's a few kms off the road so I didn't stop.

However, Charters Towers is a beautiful place. Most gold-rush towns had so much money & they spent it on magnificent public buildings. Charters Towers had one of the longest gold-rushes in history - it went for 40 years so the buildings here are better than most.
