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.
