Townsville, the largest Australian city in the tropics, is a colorful collage of gardens and fountains, great panoramas atop Castsle Hill and Northern Queensland´s only gambling casino. Its major tourist attraction, however, is a world-class aquarium which showcases the Great Barrier Reef.
Townsville is packed with leisure and sporting facilities and opportunities to expand your knowledge. Whether it be a flutter on the blackjack table or a close encounter with a croc, Townsville has it all.
- Melville's Pioneer Farm is another great family day out. Hop aboard a restored Cobb & Co coach or learn how to crack a whip or shear a sheep. This farm offers the total Aussie experience! Because of its climate, it's not surprising that the region boasts so many spacious parks and gardens.
- Set a leisurely pace through the Dan Gleeson Memorial Gardens and stop to experience its beautiful Perfume Gardens. Or a visit to Anzac Park on The Strand and take a fascinating stroll down the Heroes Walk.
The local currency used in Adelaide is the Australian Dollar (AUD).
