Tucked snugly beneath a steep, craggy mount--known as Castle Hill--the vibrant city of Townsville is as picturesque as its backdrop.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Townsville: Ayr Nature Display (in Ayr), Alligator Falls Track (in Alligator Creek) and Paluma Range National Park (in Mutarnee). Spend the 26th (Wed) exploring nature at Bowling Green Bay National Park. Spend the 3rd (Wed) on the water with a fishing tour. There's lots more to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, kick back and relax at The Strand, explore the fascinating underground world of Copperfield Gorge, and delve into the lush surroundings at Gondwana Rainforest.

To find reviews, photos, maps, and more tourist information, read our Townsville road trip planner.

Dresden, Germany to Townsville is an approximately 34-hour flight. You'll lose 9 hours traveling from Dresden to Townsville due to the time zone difference.
