Croydon Chinese Temple Site

Croydon is located on the Savannahway drive and is a historic centre in Tropical North Queensland’s Gulf Savannah. Once a thriving mining centre, today Croydon is a small, isolated community but with a rich cultural heritage. A popular place to visit is the Chinese Temple Site, which is a short drive from town on the road to Lake Belmore. This is the site of the original Chinatown and location of the 1904 Temple, which was restored as a part of the Centenary of Federation project. The remains of the original temple are complemented by the Chinese Heritage Trail and interpretive signage. A visit here will provide an interesting insight in the golden era of outback development. Entry is free.
