On the banks of Ross Creek just across the bridge from the Townsville city centre is the thriving precinct of South Townsville.

When the sun goes down, South Townsville's Palmer Street comes alive! Following the river, this after-hours hot spot is brimming with groovy cafes and restaurants, cool cocktail bars and hip hotels. The atmosphere buzzes as the locals let their hair down.

Just across the river is the Townsville casino and even more restaurants, bars and nightspots to enjoy.

South Townsville is also home to the city's Maritime Museum. The pride of the museum is a display on the SS Yongala, sunk in 1911 drowning all 122 people on board. The wreck, off the coast of Townsville, is now one of the world's premier wreck dive sites.

Visitors to the museum can also take a guided tour of a real naval patrol boat, the HMAS Townsville, anchored near the mouth of Ross River. There's also an extensive display of hand-made model boats that the kids will adore.

Accommodation at South Townsville includes backpacker hostels, motels and self-contained units. A number of well-known hotel chains also operate in the area along the river..
