Cruises from Townsville
Townsville is a city on the NE coast of Queensland, Australia. Adjacent to the central section of the Great Barrier Reef, the city has direct access to the beach. It lies in the dry tropics region, with old gold mining towns, rainforest waterfalls and a relaxed Queensland ambience that add up to 'life in Townsville'. A couple of notable 'must-dos' include viewing the city and Magnetic Island from Castle Hill that overlooks the CBD.
Many also visit the preserved World War II bunkers on Castle Hill. Take a stroll along The Strand, the city's beach-front promenade. Stroll by cafes and shops in the mall, and perhaps visit the Museum of Tropical Queensland with its fascinating relics.
