Townsville, situated in the north-east of Queensland, and in very close proximity to the Great Barrier Reef, is one of the most significant metropolitan areas in Australia. It is in fact, the largest urban centre that is north of the continent’s Sunshine Coast. Given it is a prominent place, it is greatly visited by tourists, and there are many choices of accommodation to choose such as Oaks M on Palmer which is one of many choices regarding Townsville serviced apartments alone.
There are so many adventures you can Embark on that are very beneficial financially, and one of the best things to do is taking a visit to the Jezzine Barracks, which is both a historically significant site, as well as a place of tranquillity. The parklands recently underwent a forty-million dollar restoration that resulted in breathtaking boardwalks, an ethno-botanical trail and many beautiful art-deco installations that showcase the aboriginal heritage.
For some unforgettable aquatic fun that will hardly cost you anything, there’s the Riverway Lagoons. This swimming facility covers the area of equivalent to more than three Olympic sized pools. There’s an upper Lagoon for those wishing to embark on a serious swim, and a lower lagoon for those looking to relax. There’s a cafe for once the munchies kick in, a boardwalk with a beautiful art gallery, and even opportunities to catch a free movie. In fact, entrance to the Riverway Lagoon is also completely free.
There’s so much more than Townsville has to offer, and if you’re looking for an unforgettable and affordable getaway, this is definitely a place worth considering.
