Whether it’s the café scene, arts and culture, entertainment or retail therapy you are looking for, the Townsville inner city offers something special, for everyone.
When in Townsville the Strand is a must…2.5km stretch of stunning inner city beachfront lined with restaurants, cafes, recreational facilities, parks, playgrounds, swimming enclosures, picnic and BBQ areas.
The city of Thuringowa lies adjacent to Townsville city, and although the urban sprawl makes the two blend seamlessly into one, the visitor experience is quite different.
Magnetic Island is an essential element of the North Queensland holiday experience. This world-heritage listed island is only 8km from the Townsville city centre. It takes 25 minutes by ferry or 45 minutes by car ferry to reach this island paradise. “Maggie”, as locals affectionately know it, is a colourful and eclectic island where you can retreat and relax, or join in the island’s village life. From Picnic Bay through to Horseshoe Bay, the experience is friendly and delightfully tropical….island life in the tropics!
The agriculture-based Burdekin region offers the very best in country lifestyle and hospitality – and is located only an hour’s drive south of the city of Townsville.
As one of the largest sugar producing regions in Australia, the Burdekin is centred on the towns of Ayr and Home Hill and offers everything from impressive shopping and entertainment to great fishing, birdlife and wetlands!
