Goldtower properties

McIver Family leading
the change.

Build it and they will come. This is the visionary outlook that owner and developer Paul McIver has had from the very beginning.

The McIver family first purchased land and property in Charters Towers in 1986. Owning and operating the petrol station along the Flinders Highway, the McIver’s quickly made their mark on the Charters Towers community. The business expanded into McIver Bros Livestock Transport, which was one of the largest Livestock Transporters in Queensland.

Paul’s vision for the Goldtower precinct is a continuation of a legacy commenced by his family in the transport, fuel, and retail tyre industries. The land that Goldtower Central sits on, was the home to the family tyre business in Charters Towers. In 2007, Goldtower Properties purchased this parcel of land on New Queen Road and the first buildings were constructed. Since then, Goldtower Properties continues to grow not only the Goldtower precinct but also grow their investment in the Charters Towers region by employing locals, engaging local businesses and supporting local community events and organisations.

Go West,
Grow West

In 2022 the township of Charters Towers celebrated 150 years since the first cry of Eureka rang out in Charters Towers signalling an era of fortune for the town and the birth of a region.

The Goldtower precinct is inspired by the strong history of the town and incorporates the Charters Towers story into each of its buildings and tourism elements. Goldtower’s buildings deliver a modern interpretation of historical façade with heritage colours, shapes and materials all being utilised.

The Goldtower Central streetscape incorporates pieces of tourism architecture of The World, a solid globe statue perched atop of marble plinths etched region's rich history; Three Gold Nuggets, embellished replicas of nuggets commemorating the three local mines of modern times in the Region.
