Townsville Travel Tips & Suggestions

Townsville is awesome!
Townsville is the best place in Oz -- really helpful and friendly people. Maggie Island is easy to get to and is a tropical paradise. You can see koalas in the wild up near the fort. You will have a brilliant time here.
I had a brilliant time in townsville. It's a place where you can go to get a real feel of Ozy life as there isn't a huge backpacker appeal. It's just a really nice town and I look forward to going back. Another bonus is that it is a base for the Oz army so there were plenty of fit young men around. This was way back in 2000 so hope not too much has changed!
