Flights To Townsville

Is it a town? Or a ville? It’s both! Townsville is a charming little city that sprawls between the sea and the red hills of the Far North in Queensland. Its grand 19th-century buildings house museums, a vibrant nightlife and tasty restaurants. Feel young again with the local student and military populations, or just feel at home by sporting your thongs and making friends with the laid-back locals.

Speaking of sports, how do a couple of world-class diving spots strike you? Take the plunge here or catch a ferry out to attractive Magnetic Island (get it?). Either way, don’t forget to pack your bathers before hopping on one of our Townsville flights.

Getting Around Townsville

Townsville Airport is just 10km west of the city. Hail a taxi or check out Wotif’s car hire options. That, or climb aboard the Sunbus. With seven lines running around town, you’ll have access to just about everything.

When You Land…

Are you on flights to Townsville that arrive in the morning? Strap on some scuba gear and get a fish’s-eye view of the wreck of the Yongala. If you touch down in the afternoon, you’ll be just in time for tea at Hervey’s Range Heritage Tea Rooms at Piper’s Lookout. Enjoy the sunset, too.

Landing at night? Get gussied up and head to the Flinders Street nightclub strip to shake, shake, shake your booty. Then put that booty to bed in Townsville accommodation.

Live Like a Local

A little way off the beaten path is Toomulla Beach, where you can picnic, camp and sunbathe your heart out. Because there are fewer people here, it’s also a great place to birdwatch.

Tired of waiting for the perfect deal to fly into your inbox? Then head to Wotif and check out our cheap flights to Townsville. We have great deals all year round, so make this this one a big year…for holiday travels, that is!
