Living in Townsville, the largest regional centre in the North.

The city heart provides opportunity for boutique shopping, fine dining experiences, cultural events and a bustling nightlife. The Strand is Townsville’s waterfront esplanade; take a stroll along the picturesque paths, do some shopping or attend the night markets, be spoilt for choice with alfresco dining options, sit and relax while the kids play at the water park or one of the family fun areas. Picnic and BBQ facilities are available, as well as gym equipment (including a rock climbing wall) and amenities. Swim in the man-made rockpool or the lifeguard monitored beaches. All with magnificent views of the jewel in Townsville’s crown, Magnetic Island. A short, scenic ferry ride will get you there.

Or you can explore the heritage listed Great Barrier Reef on our doorstep, get up close and personal with the wildlife at Billabong Sanctuary, or spend a family day browsing Reef HQ (don’t forget to check out the turtle hospital). Take a dip in one of the public pools, or a scenic drive 66km north to swim in the icy cool waterfall pools of Crystal Creek or hike the tropical rainforest paths of Paluma. Townsville loves its sport. Watch the action of a Cowboys or Townsville Fire home game. Camp, fish, ski or boat along the Ross River which winds its way from the Dam, through the Riverway lagoons, gardens and venue facilities, up various weirs before reaching South Townsville’s beach and wetlands.
