Although the North Queensland city of Townsville is not as popular a tourist destination as the state’s larger hubs, Brisbane and Cairns, it has its fair share of delights to share with visitors. These include beautiful beaches, a more relaxed atmosphere, interesting museums, and cultural centers, as well as access to the Australian Outback and rainforest.
