"One of the most important towns in Australian history"
|The township of Chillagoe was created in 1900 by the workers who toiled in the copper smelter, the many local mines and supportive industries. Chillagoe went on to become one of the largest metallurgical developments pre-World War 1. A population of thousands inhabited the area and relics from this past era are still visible.|
|Tourist visitation is highest in the winter months between April and October with temperatures ranging from 14 to 34 degrees Celsius. All throughout the year the region offers interest and excitement, and summer is the green season with spectacular tropical storms, new vegetation growth and wild flowers.The summer storms flush the caves and they again present themselves as fresh and having had no human visitation. Temperatures may reach 39 degrees Celsius but unlike the coast, humidity can be as low as 40%.|
