Do you want to stay in a hotel or a backpacker hostel?

If you want a hostel: I always use to search for a good one, but then book directly on the hostel's website.

Have fun in Townsville :-)

Travel Tips for Townsville

Billabong Sanctuary

by derats

Billabong Sanctuary is Australia's best interactive wildlife experience.

Nowhere else in Australia will you have the opportunity to interact with so many of Australia's native animals.

Your experience will be enhanced by the Sanctuary's friendly staff of rangers from whom you will gain a tremendous knowledge of Australian animals and where to find these animals in the wild.

The Sanctuary has 3 habitats of rainforest, eucalypt forest and wetlands all in the one easy location, which can be experienced in either a half day or a full day visit. The native animals are displayed in their own environments in natural surroundings, the experience is like that of walking through the Australian bush.

The Sanctuary has accreditation with the Australian Ecotourism Association, so you will be guaranteed of a high standard of Eco-tourism Experience.

Get in touch with your wild side with a hands-on experience at Billabong Sanctuary. The sanctuary is the only accredited eco-tourism operator in the region and has a policy not to acquire animals from the wild. You will learn all about the native animals of North Queensland with the wildlife talks and feeding shows given by Billabong's qualified rangers. Watch giant crocodiles being fed, check out the new home of the wedgetail eagles and see some of Australia's major habitats recreated.

Magnetic Island

by stevezero

Magnetic Island is a small tropical island just off Townsville. It is readily accesable via a 20 minute ferry trip from town. There is either a passenger only ferry, or one which takes cars as well.
The island is predominantly covered in National Park (Pine, Eucalypt and rainforest trees) but it does have several tourist resorts, shops, cafes, restaurants etc and offers a wide range of activities including relaxing on some wonderful beaches. fishing is also available.
We were lucky enough to see koalas in the wild, and some lovely rock wallabies.

Townsville - Along the Great Barrier Reef

by MikeAtSea

Founded in 1864, Townsville is one of the focal points of North Queensland. A pleasant climate and relaxed lifestyle rank among the town’s great attractions. Townsville is the port for the agricultural and mining production of the vast inland region of North Queensland as well as the starting point of the main road to the Northern Territory.
In recent years, millions of dollars have been spent in an effort to attract more visitors to stay in Townsville rather than heading on to Cairns.
A hotel-casino and marina have been built on the oceanfront and other parts of the city are being redeveloped while still retaining much of their 19th-century atmosphere. The showpiece is the Great Barrier Reef Headquarter, an impressive complex that includes a showpiece aquarium, an Omnimax Theatre, shops and the Queensland Museum.
Although the city stretches a long way, the centre is fairly compact and can be easily explored on foot. Just a short distance out of town are several museums worth visiting, as well as parks, gardens and wildlife sanctuaries. The lookout point atop Castle Hill, which dominates the city, offers fine views over the town and the coast.
