Townsville

Latest deals on flights, hotels, activities and more

Townsville is a beach-side city in Queensland’s north-east. The weather, location and small-town roots make for a laid-back atmosphere, but Townsville also knows how to party. It hosts a huge variety of festivals throughout the year and the nightlife is always vibrant. Townsville contains the world’s largest living coral reef aquarium, and just outside the city limits is the Great Barrier Reef itself. For scuba divers, the wreck of the SS Yongala is another big drawcard. Back on terra firma, Townsville’s attractions include national parks and Australia’s tallest waterfall.
