Lifestyle at a Tropical Pace
Boating - made easy. Breakwater Marina serves as an ideal boating destination thanks to our location amongst the natural wonders of north Queensland.
Situated on the northern east coast of Australia in Wulgurukaba & Bindal Country, the area is a vibrant mix of sub-tropical rainforests, sandy beaches, rugged outback plains and quaint coastal townships. Breakwater Marina is located within Townsville’s City whilst still having immediate ocean access to spectacular islands and secluded beaches.

The Townsville region is a tropical mix of sandy beaches, friendly faces and a relaxed vista on life.
The beautiful city of Townsville is located amongst the natural wonders of Tropical North Queensland with diverse and awe inspiring experiences from the Reef to the rainforest to the dirt and dust of the outback.

Peter Scott “Olivia”
"An amazing Marina experience. Very professional and attentive staff, well maintained facilities by a team that obviously cares about its customers and their boats. Our first time leaving the boat over cyclone season and we had no worries at all the team would take great care of her. Great location, we’d highly recommend a stay here."

Megan, Donald & Shay SV "Atmosphere"
From the day we visited the marina looking for a new home in Townsville we were taken by surprise by the friendliness and helpfulness of all the marina staff... This is the third marina we have lived in and by far the friendliest. The marina promotes a community atmosphere and welcome all members of the crew including our fur babies.
