Take time to inspect the bust of John Curtin, Australia’s war time Prime Minister and listen to the audio of his association with Charlton. View the ‘Big Fish’ (a Kenya Broadbill Swordfish), a memento of the 2006 Commonwealth Games and the Premier Harvester manufactured at the Charlton Foundry in the early 1900s. River heights of Charlton’s worst floods are recorded beside the viewing platform over the river.

Walk across the swing bridge to Gordon Park which contains another playground, the Charlton Swimming Pool, a camping ground and a statue of a swagman, carved by chainsaw artist Kevin Gilders from a stump of pine.
