Townsville Activities

A gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, Townsville offers a host of experiences and activities, from tropical islands to World Heritage–listed rainforests and national parks.


Townsville is blessed with abundant wildlife and five different types of landscapes within an hour’s drive of the city. It is also renowned for its quality local produce, with many food and wine festivals held throughout the year.

Your group could fly by helicopter to Orpheus Island for a fishing trip where the day’s catch is grilled on an open fire, or explore the culturally rich neighbouring islands on a tour with a local Indigenous guide.

Guests can meet koalas at Bungalow Bay Koala Village on Magnetic Island, or see the world’s largest living coral reef aquarium at Reef HQ Aquarium.
