Townsville is the largest city in Queensland north of Sunshine Coast. It is roughly the size of Ft. Lauderdale. It is the unofficial capital of North Queensland and the home of NRL’s North Queensland Cowboys. Townsville is popular with tourists due to its adjacency to the midsection of the Great Barrier Reef and Magnetic Island.

We spent the day taking a walking tour of the city including the Strand, Kissing Point, Jezzine Fort, Castle Hill, Flinders Street, and had dinner on Palmer Street near our hotel. We enjoyed Townsville, it was a nice place to spend time.

    Looks like the buildings are spaced further apart than in cities here.
