Port of Call - Townsville

Surrounded by some of Queensland´s most incredible natural wonders and stunning regions, the city of Townsville is a jewel of East Coast Australia.

Brilliant contrasts between untouched rainforests, rugged outback landscapes and picturesque country terrain, make Townsville one of North Queensland´s most sought after cities.

With the Great Barrier Reef and island paradises like Magnetic and Hinchinbrook Islands just a stones throw away, it´s easy to see why Townsville is such a tourist magnet.

What to Explore

Magnetic Island

Magnetic Island is an island unlike any other in Queensland's tropical north. Located just 8km off Townsville, the island is comprised of untouched National Park, a resident population of 2,500 people and a variety of holiday resorts.

Explore the majestic Mt Cook, hidden patches of rainforest and eucalypt forest and imposing hoop pines while embarking on some of the 24 kilometres of walking tracks on the island.

Castle Hill

Work off some of those pounds you have gained from over-consumption throughout your cruise and make the trek up the infamous Castle Hill.

This isolated pink granite monolith towers over the city, rising 286m above sea level and dominating the city skyline. The views from the top are unsurpassed and the military history you will find present here will fascinate and amaze.

Reef H.Q. Aquarium

Boasting all the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef in one small space, Reef HQ Aquarium is a must for lovers of the creatures of the deep.

As the "world's largest living Coral Reef Aquarium" this attraction boasts a range of displays and exhibits that focus on all aspects of this World Heritage Listed natural attraction.
