Georgetown

#savannahway

Situated west of the Newcastle range on the Etheridge River Georgetown is the administrative centre for the Etheridge Shire. A thriving gold hub at its peak in the 1870’s Georgetown was named in honour of the local gold commissioner Howard St George.

The area still yields gold nuggets and semi-precious stones including topaz, quartz, spinel, garnet, carnigorm, acquamarine and sapphires.
