Townsville Vacation Travel Guide

Townsville Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia

The Australian city of Townsville sits on the sun-drenched coastline of Queensland, around 400 miles north of the state capital, Brisbane.

First established as a port town in 1866, Townsville quickly blossomed. Take a walk along Flinders Street and admire some of Australia’s finest 19th-century buildings, including gracious pubs, which have been serving up ice-cold beers to thirsty locals for generations.

For years Townsville was a busy but provincial port until her northern skies darkened with the clouds of war. At the Army Museum of North Queensland, learn how the city became one of the largest allied bases during World War Two.

Discover even more of Townsville’s historical and natural treasures at the Museum of Tropical Queensland. Right next door, dive into Reef HQ, where the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef have been brought to shore for all to enjoy.
Just a few miles south of Townsville, continue your walk on the wild side at the award-winning Billabong Sanctuary.

To experience Townsville’s brightest jewel, take the 5-mile ferry ride to Magnetic Island. From Nellie Bay, set off to discover Maggie’s national parks and coastal communities.

When it comes to Aussie vacation adventures, be sure to set aside a few days in Townsville. Because sometimes it’s the lesser-known places which hold the sweetest surprises and offer the warmest welcomes.
