Tucked snugly beneath a steep, craggy mount--known as Castle Hill--the vibrant city of Townsville is as picturesque as its backdrop.
You've now added Remote Area Dive to your itinerary. Escape the urban bustle at Wet Tropics World Heritage Area and Fishing Charters & Tours. Discover out-of-the-way places like Paluma Range National Park and Many Peaks Walking Track. When in Townsville, make a side trip to see Alligator Falls Track in Alligator Creek, approximately 38 minutes away. Spend the 15th (Wed) exploring nature at Bowling Green Bay National Park. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at The Strand, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St James Cathedral, head off the coast to Museum of Tropical Queensland, and identify plant and animal life at Cape Pallarenda Conservation Park.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, go to the Townsville trip planner .

In January in Townsville, expect temperatures between 37°C during the day and 29°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
