With its World Heritage listed National Parks, marine conservation programs, historic gold rush towns and vibrant communities, the Townsville region is an exciting and diverse place to visit.
Start by soaking up the atmosphere at one of Townsville’s many events. Hire a car and head north to the Hinchinbrook region for rainforests and bushwalking, or see the great expanses of sugar cane fields at Burdekin.
Try your luck panning for gold in the outback town of Charters Towers. Then, head to the islands and count the koalas on Magnetic Island or relax under a palm tree at Orpheus Island on the Great Barrier Reef.
The choice is yours.
