Things to do in Townsville

Considered the unofficial capital of far North Queensland, Townsville is a coastal city and a setting off point for the Great Barrier Reef. With a tropical climate and an interesting history Townsville is a melting pot of cultures and a destination for any backpackers travelling up the East Coast of Australia.

Being in a tropical climate and surrounded by beautiful beaches it is easy to find a place to spend the day, but one of the best is The Strand which is a seaside foreshore giving views to Magnetic Island, the Port of Townsville aswell as Cape Cleveland. The area is home to parks, pools and restaurants which makes it a perfect place for the family to spend a day. The water park at The Strand is a great way to cool off for the whole family.

On the 4th Friday of every month there is a night market held at the strand which is popular with locals and tourists alike, so if you time your visit well you are sure to find something you like and no doubt a quality dinner.

If you are after a little bit more culture on your visit to Darwin you can check out the Museum of Tropical Queensland and gain an insight to the local area’s history. One of the most interesting displays are the artefacts from the wreck of the HMS Pandora which was one of the most significant wrecks in Australian waters as it was holding some of the participants of the Bounty mutiny when it sunk in 1791.

With this and other interesting displays you will learn alot about the local area, it is also in the same area as the Reef Aquarium, so you can visit them both in the same day.

When it comes to refueling after a hard day at The Strand or wandering around The Museum of Tropical Queensland there are many varied options depending on your taste, but not many people can say “no” to a well cooked steak and one of the finest in Townsville is at IMC Steak on Palmer Street.

These guys know how to cook steak and with locally sourced produce do some of the finest meals in town. With steaks starting at around $25 you will not find better value, high quality steak for the money. When it comes to picking the sides, there is a wide selection but the Honey Glazed Carrots would have Bugs Bunny lining up.

If you feel like something from the sea rather than from the paddock you can head to Simply Top Seafood Bar which is also on Palmer Street, just look for the old red lighthouse.

Simply Top use only locally wild caught fish, so you can be assured of quality and freshness. If you are visiting with a group of people they have platters to share which will allow you to sample a bit of everything for less than $20 per person, but no matter what you do make sure you try the Moreton Bay Bugs, they are a Slipper Lobster from Queensland’s Moreton Bay and are a local specialty.
