Townsville City

From diving shipwrecks and island-hopping to strolls along the foreshore and a packed calendar of events – you’ll see, do and learn more in Townsville.

Just add water

  • Experience the Great Barrier Reef without getting wet at the world’s largest living coral reef aquarium.
  • Get hands-on at the Turtle Hospital and do your bit for animal conservation and reef research.
  • Dive the century-old SS Yongala shipwreck, then swap sea for sand and head to laid-back Magnetic Island or luxurious Orpheus Island.

Entree. Mainland. Dessert.

  • Meet an eat street (aka Palmer Street) worth saving your appetite for, with a smorgasbord of restaurants and cafes to choose from.
  • Time your trip with one of Townsville’s many concerts, music festivals, sporting events, culinary fiestas and local markets. 
  • Ride a bike along the palm tree-studded esplanade – The Strand – or take a hike up Castle Hill for a 360-degree sunset serenade.
