It had brief glory as a mining town, with copper and gold being processed. Nowadays it is a sleepy village at the mouth of the Copperfield River Gorge, with the twisted remnants of the old railway line bent away down the river from the still standing eucalypt supports.
To reach Einasleigh or the nearby Forsayth, one has to drive north from Charters Towers to The Lynd, then turn NW on a gravel road and follow the signs. Alternatively you can proceed on bitumen from Mt Garnet, turn off to Forsayth, then take the gravel road back to Einasleigh.
