Townsville, Australia’s largest tropical city, is the focal point of this region which is bounded by Mission Beach to the north, Charters Towers to the west, and Bowen to the south. The five resort islands – Dunk, Magnetic, Orpheus, Hinchinbrook and Bedarra – are all different in character and all offer a unique experience for the holidaymaker.

Townsville’s many attractions include the world’s largest living coral reef aquarium, a wildlife sanctuary, a casino, beaches, museums, theatres, galleries and restaurants. Beautiful Magnetic Island is just 20 minutes from the city centre by fast cat ferry. Day cruises and diving expeditions to the Great Barrier Reef and white water rafting excursions also depart regularly from the city.
