Tucked snugly beneath a steep, craggy mount--known as Castle Hill--the vibrant city of Townsville is as picturesque as its backdrop.
Kids will appreciate attractions like The Strand and Castle Hill. Step out of Townsville with an excursion to Hinchinbrook Island in Cardwell--about 2 hours away. There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, take in the exciting artwork at Umbrella Studio Contemporary Arts, browse the exhibits of Perc Tucker Regional Gallery, and don't miss a visit to Riverway.
