Charlton has a plethora of history to explore. Visit the Prime Minister John Curtin’s bust at the Travellers Rest or the General Harold ‘Pompey’ Elliott bust in Elliott Gardens which is also home to our cenotaph and war memorials. Read the plaques on many of Charlton’s historic buildings and view the photo boards located throughout the town. We have our own Bills’ trough and if you have time, pop into the award winning Charlton Golden Grains Museum. We have numerous historical buildings – the 1882 Courthouse, the 1883 Mechanics’ Institute, the historic art deco Rex Theatre and many lovely old hotels. If history’s your thing – you wont be disappointed.
