Townsville & Surrounds
The unofficial capital of North Queensland, Townsville is a thriving city characterized by the community spirit and creativity of the tropics. At the heart of Townsville is The Strand, a beach and garden strip, with a host of cafes, restaurants and children's playgrounds all overlooking Cleveland Bay and the warm Coral Sea. Further into the heart of Townsville City lies the vibrant Palmer Street dining precinct, Reef HQ Aquarium with the world's largest living onshore coral reef, and the pride of North Queensland's The Cowboys Leagues Club. Other attractions include the Museum of Tropical Queensland and just a ferry trip away, Magnetic Island, which is largely pristine national park offering pristine secluded bays, abundant native wildlife and a mix of traditional holiday accommodation through to ultra-chic resorts.
