Lifestyle…. At a tropical pace……
Townsville is a tropical destination boasting beaches, rainforest and the outback. The city centre is situated close to the Marina and the Strand beach, Magnetic Island and gateway to the reef. Living so close to the city centre is convenient for our Marina tenants, easy to walk to work or enjoy the local delights and dining precincts.
Breakwater Marina serves as an ideal boating destination thanks to our location amongst the natural wonders of north Queensland. Breakwater Marina is located within Townsville’s CBD whilst still having immediate ocean access. Beauty surrounds our city with diverse experiences from the Reef to the rainforest, to the dirt and dust of the outback. Bring your sense of adventure, take the time to meet the locals, experience the culture and heritage that make our region so unique.
Magnetic Island and the stunning Palm Group are just off the coast from Townsville, with Magnetic Island (known as Maggie by locals) a perfect day or long weekend destination. Magnetic Island has secluded beaches and bays bookended by rocky headlands, abundant wildlife and a thriving local community. The outer Great Barrier Reef is accessible from both islands. Snorkelling and diving are world class in this underwater playground with the SSYongala considered one of the best wreck dives on the planet, 28m below the Coral Sea. The 110m steamer capsized during a storm in 1911 and today remains as one of the largest intact ship wrecks in the world hosting a dazzling array of tropical fish and marine life.
To the northwest of Maggie in Halifax Bay lies Rattlesnake and Herald Islands with only a short passage further to the north to be amongst the Great Palm Island Group. Ten islands form the Group and offer a diverse mix of tropical island experiences, majestic anchorages and sandy beaches. Another day run northeast has you marvelling at the natural wilderness of Hinchinbrook Island.
If you prefer your fish at the end of a line then Townsville will wet your game and sports fishing appetite. Renowned for its estuary, inshore sports and offshore game fishing, you’re sure to be hooked. Here in Townsville, we have all expected public services, infrastructure, entertainment and cuisine expected of a regional city.
