Start your Townsville holiday at the top of Castle Hill. No, there isn’t a castle to look at, but the lookout point offers views so pretty you’ll forget about the name anyway. From there, you can drive one of Wotif’s Townsville car hire options south to the Townsville Museum and Historical Society before cruising along the waterfront. Before you hit the beach, stop at the Army Museum North Queensland and the Jezzine Barracks. You’ll find a lovely art walk and a breezy promenade in addition to a museum and memorial sites. Once your inner history buff has had its chance to shine, it’s time to give your inner beach bum some time in the sun. West of the city centre, stake your sunbrella in the sand on The Strand—a long stretch of golden beaches, punctuated with green parks and loads of cafes and surf shops. Feeling toasty? Grab some snorkelling gear and dive at the Great Barrier Reef, which is actually a collection of thousands of reefs, so have fun picking a favourite!
Speaking of picking favourites, start shopping on Finders Street, located just west of Ross Creek. This shop-lined street offers everything from chain stores to boutiques, including the Perc Tucker Regional Gallery. We hope you packed an extra suitcase, because you know what they say—Townsville holidays follow the rule of finders, keepers.
Want to chow down on some flavourful finds? Starting at the pier, Ross Creek is lined with heaps of restaurants, all putting their own spin on global fusion and modern Aussie cuisine. Along the Strand you’ll also find several waterfront bistros and cafes whipping up tempting dishes. If you’re feeling extra fancy, catch a ferry out to mysterious Magnetic Island.
When the sun sets over the Coral Sea, hurry to the sand. The Strand Night Markets pop up after dark and you can shop your way through local vendors and make some new friends right on the beach. Sidle up to a nearby bar for drinks or scoot on over to the creek for even more options.
This is a no-brainer—you’ve gotta go! Book Townsville holiday packages to mix and match sweet deals on airfares and accommodation and get outta town.
