Tucked snugly beneath a steep, craggy mount--known as Castle Hill--the vibrant city of Townsville is as picturesque as its backdrop.
Family-friendly places like Reef HQ Great Barrier Reef Aquarium and The Strand will thrill your kids. Explore hidden gems such as Jourama Falls and Paluma State Forest. Take a break from Townsville with a short trip to Paluma Range National Park in Mutarnee, about 1h 25 min away. Spend the 3rd (Fri) exploring nature at Bowling Green Bay National Park. Spend the 8th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at National Trust Heritage Centre, explore the activities along Lake Paluma, delve into the lush surroundings at Gondwana Rainforest, and identify plant and animal life at Townsville Town Common Conservation Park.
