Townsville is a very large regional city and we stayed at the Walkabout Big 4 Caravan Park on the Corner of the Bruce and Flinders Highways. Located behind a service station, we found it had very good amenities and was quite secure. 

It was easy to drive into town. The Townsville Visitor Information Centre was extremely busy. It is surrounded by great coffee shops and cafes.

Tip

  • Pick up brochures, head off and have a coffee while absorbing the information, then return to the Visitor Information Centre to book your tours.
  • catch the ferry to Magnetic Island - you can take your car if you wish or hire a small vehicle when you arrive
  • The Strand is a great place for lunch
  • Castle Hill Lookout has 360 degree views of Townsville and across the ocean to Magnetic Island - beautiful

I only spent a short time time here, but it was lovely. Two of my highlights were dinner at Ciabatta (http://ciabattarestaurant.com.au/) and experiencing the views from the top of Castehill Lookout
