What is there to do in Townsville?

A mixture of backpackers and true local Australians mark their print across the pretty coastal town; archaic architecture supplies satisfaction for fans of traditional buildings and notable landmarks, especially Jezzine Barracks which offers picturesque routes through the unique infrastructure. The primary appeal of the city lies in its cultural wealth; the abundance of museums and art galleries showcase the arty side of Australia’s east coast, and to add to the entertainment, Townsville arguably lays home to the country’s best aquarium.

The attractions may bogart much of the attention, but there is a plethora of natural beauty decorating the shoreline. Bask in the powerful rays of the afternoon sun whilst relaxing on the golden sands that stretch along the coast. For a breathtaking view of the spectacular landscape, climb Castle Hill for enviable photos of the encompassing terrain, made especially beautiful come nightfall.
