1. The Strand
Who doesn’t love a long stroll on the beach, more specifically, a 2.2km stroll on the beach? The Strand is a 2.2km stretch of waterfront promenade dotted with beaches, parks, restaurants, bars and some of the best views you’ll ever see of Magnetic Island, the Port of Townsville and Cape Cleveland. Plus, it’s a great starting point for the other attractions we’re about to share with you.
How to get there: Grab a seat on our popular Cairns to Townsville route where you’ll enjoy a peaceful, scenic journey with spectacular ocean views. Once you arrive in Townsville, the Strand is within walking distance and is a great central point for the rest of your Townsville adventure.
2. Magnetic Island
With two thirds protected National Park, untouched nature and quiet beaches, it’s easy to see how this island got its name, as there’s something truly magnetic about it. An untouched paradise, Magnetic Island boasts 23 bays and beaches and a sunny, mild climate all year round so you can take advantage of its dive sites and fishing culture.
How to book it: Stay for one, two or three nights with one of our flexible tours. Each includes accommodation and transfers so all you have to plan is how to relax once you get there.
