Holiday In Townsville

When you’ve had your final meeting of the day or hit that afternoon slump and it’s time to let your mind wander, where does it go?
If you think of easygoing beach burgs with small-town vibes but big-city eats and off-the-charts nightlife, you want Townsville holiday packages. And you’re definitely not alone. Australia’s biggest tropical city attracts travellers from all over the country and beyond to explore the reefs, party down on Flinders Street and eat bugs (just read on to find out about that last one).

Things to Do in Townsville

You may not even know if you’ve been to an award-winning beach before, but after a Townsville holiday, you definitely have. In the North Ward, The Strand is just over 2 km of palm trees and picnic spots—not to mention views of Cape Cleveland and Magnetic Island. Feeling the pull? Sail on over! Take a jet ski tour, see what’s under the waves with snorkelling and scuba diving, or ball out and rent a yacht…or just a kayak. The reef exploration doesn’t have to end there: Townsville is one of Queensland’s best gateways to the Great Barrier Reef and the closest to the spectacular SS Yongala wreck. Just don’t let the human-sized grouper fish sneak up on you (you’ve been warned).

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

If you want to take a break from the beach (or if you just lost your sunnies in the waves), a holiday in Townsville has plenty of retail therapy. You can’t go wrong at the pedestrian-only section of Flinders Street in the centre of town, especially on Sundays when Cotters Market takes over. Aside from replacing those sunnies, look for handmade soaps, jewellery and ceramics to take home for mum and dad.

Haven’t been able to leave the sand? No worries. You don’t have to go far from The Strand to find fish and chips stands, burger joints and cafes that keep it as casual as your last relationship. Once you’ve rinsed the sand from your toes, take one of’s sweet Townsville car hire options across the Victoria Bridge to Palmer Street in South Townsville for modern grills and fusion cuisine. Tip: Try the bugs! Nope, they’re not insects. The lobster-like crustaceans known as “Moreton Bay bugs” come from all over the Queensland coast.

Shopping and dining are great, of course, but Townsville holidays really hit their stride when the sun goes down. Don’t let the laid-back tropical vibe fool you—Townsville knows how to get rowdy. Walk those heels back to Flinders Street for everything from dive bars to trendy lounges, plus plenty of music for you to dance the night away. Got full as a goog last night? Flinders Street still has you covered. Just keep it low-key at a brewery or in the back booth of a nice, dark Irish pub.

What’s Next?

You’ve been searching for your next tropical getaway for too long. Turn that search history into reality with Townsville packages—you deserve it. And if the friendly locals shout you a beer or two, well, you deserve that too.
