What is it like to live and work in Townsville?
Townsville is considered the unofficial capital of North Queensland and as well as hosting a large number of major business and government offices it also remains popular with tourists and backpackers drawn to the nearby Great Barrier Reef.
The city offers a wide variety of reef tourism activities and has outstanding diving and snorkelling facilities. Townsville also has many restaurants and a vibrant pub and night-club scene. Other local attractions include a long garden and tropical beach strip known as 'The Strand', a riverfront parkland attraction called Riverway, a large tropical aquarium and Magnetic Island, a beautiful and popular neighbouring island which consists mostly of national park.
There are a number of parks scattered throughout Townsville and the Ross River that flows through the city is a popular spot for fishing, rowing and water skiing.
