Description

Townsville is a vibrant region that encompasses beautiful coastal towns, rainforests, rugged Outback and country terrain. Appreciate the beauty of the city and nearby Magnetic Island from Castle Hill, the mountain that gives Townsville a unique appeal. But the charm of this lovely region expands further from the city of Townsville... head in any direction and you'll be rewarded. The Great Barrier Reef sprawls to the east, the Outback beckons west, islands and rainforest entice to the north while sugar cane and mango farming communities await in the south.

The Townsville region's national parks are home to rare butterflies and birds, kangaroos, platypus and ancient trees. Many of these also boast beautiful waterfalls and swimming holes... exquisite areas that are reminiscent of a bygone era.

There is also a rich history in this region that has been shaped by Aboriginal tribes, miners, pastoralists and war. Remnants of these bygone times are still evident in the beautiful colonial architecture, historic pubs, museums and displays of old gold mining machinery and cottages.

The opportunities for exploration in the Townsville Region invite you.
