Tucked snugly beneath a steep, craggy mount--known as Castle Hill--the vibrant city of Townsville is as picturesque as its backdrop.
Step out of the city life by going to The Strand and Billabong Sanctuary. Spend the 2nd (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 5th (Fri) exploring nature at Bowling Green Bay National Park. And it doesn't end there: take in the pleasant sights at Castle Hill, head off the coast to Museum of Tropical Queensland, pause for some serene contemplation at St James Cathedral, and take in the exciting artwork at Perc Tucker Regional Gallery.
