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.

Things to do in Townsville City 

Culture connoisseurs can get their science and history fix at the Museum of Tropical Queensland and Australian Institute of Marine Science. Take a stroll along The Strand with a gelato in hand or take a hike up to Castle Hill for a 360-degree sunset serenade. Experience the Great Barrier Reef without getting wet at the world’s largest living coral reef aquarium. Dive the century-old SS Yongala shipwreck, then swap sea for sand and head to laid-back Magnetic Island or luxurious Orpheus Island.
