Townsville is a vibrant region that encompasses beautiful coastal towns, rainforests, rugged Outback and country terrain. But the appeal of this lovely region expands further from the city of Townsville.
To the east sprawls the Great Barrier Reef, one of the seven wonders of the natural world, and it isn’t hard to see why. It is larger than the Great Wall of China and is the only living thing on earth visible from space. To the west of Townsville you will find the vast outback while to the north stands lush rainforest, while in the city centre you will find the world renowned Reef HQ - the world's largest living coral reef aquarium - the Billabong Sanctuary, where you can learn all about Australia's fascinating wildlife, and many other cultural and heritage attractions.
