Fast facts about Townsville
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.
Where is it? Townsville is in north-east Queensland.
How do I get there? Fly from every city in Australia as well as some regional airports. Airlines include Qantas, Jetstar, and Virgin. You can also take a train from Cairns or Brisbane, or catch a bus from a range of rural and metropolitan stations.
When should I go? For balmy days and cool nights, visit between May and September.
What should I do? See marine life up close at the Reef HQ Aquarium, swim, hike and snorkel on Magnetic Island, walk to Wallaman Falls, catch events including Groovin’ the Moo, the Cultural Fest, rodeos and campdrafts, scuba dive in the Great Barrier Reef, see the view from Castle Hill, be amazed by the animals at Billabong Sanctuary, and have a dip and a sip along The Strand.
