Must see · Landmark · Tourist Spot
One of the city’s most exciting and dynamic areas is Riverway, offering a combination of commercial, cultural, and leisure/sports activities. This riverfront parkland, opened in 2006, stretches for 11 km (7 mi) along the Cross River. The nearby business district, where you can visit a number of trendy shops and cafés, is connected to the parkland area by a pathway stretching along the shore. Enjoy a variety of water sports at the site’s calm lagoon, or drop by the nearby cricket stadium (with a capacity of over 10,000 visitors) to experience the famous Australian game day atmosphere. A convenient arts center and gallery are located in the area as well, hosting regular exhibitions, plays, and concerts. Planning Townsville trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • Riverway pools, playgrounds & boardwalk are off Sporting Drive, Condon however the map takes you to Aitkenvale. There’s a lot of construction going on at the Arts Centre but there’s a signboard...  more »
  • A nice walk up from the Riverway to Apex park. The council have done a really good job of clearing it enough to make it accessible, yet leaving it feeling like a little bit of bushland.  more »

  • Beautiful park, pity it's taking so long for the rebuild to happen after the floods. It really is quite an eye sore and an inconvenience (especially if mobility isn't great). But generally it's a really lovely spot to relax and enjoy.
