Townsville

Townsville is northern Australia's largest tropical city, nestled beside the Great Barrier Reef and only four hours south of Cairns.  Our ideal location attracts thousands of international visitors to the region every year to experience tropical islands, reef, rainforest and the Australian outback.

Located in North Queensland's dry tropics, Townsville boasts an average of 300 days of sunshine each year. Townsville's award-winning Strand is one of the best inner-city beachfronts in Australia. This seaside promenade is lined with restaurants, cafes and bars and it is the perfect place to cycle, rollerblade, walk, fish or picnic. Townsville offers all you could want in entertainment, vibrant nightlife and sporting facilities.
