Travel Tips for Townsville

Dive the SS Yongala Wreck

by Tripack

My greatest diving experience. After diving several times on the Great Barrier Reef, I discover this stunning wreck. Here the beautiful soft corals have amazing colors. The Yongala Wreck has the most amazing and prolific marine wildlife of any place I've ever been. A real Underwater Eden's garden where I could swim with eagle ray, sea snake (but I refuse its Apple), sea turtles and even whales!!!

The S.S. Yongala sank during a cyclone in 1911 with the loss of more than 120 souls. It was not until 1958 that the wreck was discovered and due to its remote location it has remained mostly untouched. The wreck begins 14m below the surface and extends to 28m. As it is the only structure in the region, the marine life gathers at the wreck providing for an unforgettable diving experience. But be aware that underwater currents could be quite strong, so dive safe.

With 100m long it is the largest and most intact historic shipwreck in Australian waters. It has now become known as one of the worlds top wreck dives.

Ferry to Magnetic Island

by stevezero

Magntic Island lies just 8km from townsville and is easily reached in just 20mins by the fast ferry (more like a speedboat) from the centre of town.

Bookings not necessary, just turn up and go

Townsville is Queenslands fourth biggest city. It has a port, an army base and an university. It's the access point to Magnetic Island. Also my father used to live here, which made it the main attraction to me!

Townsville. Entrance to The Great Barrier Reef

by Randall_Burt

"The Floating Hotel"

Townsville was a stop on My 2nd Trip Around the World. My Destination in Townsville was a Boat to the 4 Seasons Great Barrier Reef Hotel. I spent two nights at this Hotel. I went Scuba Diving while there and fishing. It was a one of a kind Hotel. Built in Singapore, Floated to Australia's Great Barrier Reef it was a 2 hour ride by High Speed Boat to get there. It lasted about a Year then went bust. Floated to Vietnam, Vietnam is last know destination for this Hotel but rumors are it is in Malasia now. It had 200 Rooms and was connected to the floor of the ocean. in case of a Cyclone, one end was disconneted and the wind would blow it around in a circle after everyone was evacuated. The floating, Heliport,Tennis Courts and pool were disconnected and taken a distance from the Hotel to ride out the storm. The Pool had already been distroied befor My Stay there. Photo is The four Seasons Great Barrier Reef Hotel. before My stay there I stayed in a hotel over the bus station as I arrived at 2am with no where to go. I stayed after the Floating Hotel at The Hotel Breakwater and Casino. I got very Sea Sick on the ride from Townsville to The Floating Hotel. Might have been the 19 Hour Bus ride and eatting chips and pop for the 19 hours. Ride back was nice. If You stayed at this Hotel while in Australia or Vietnam, I would like to Hear from You. Thanks.
