* BBQ on"Strand park "
* Heritage walk
* Old cemetery walk
* "Castle Hill,"
* Did I tell you can kill yourself in Townsville. There is a large hill which takes about 45 minutes to walk to the top. The only time I walked up the hill I felt I was going to have myself a good old fashioned myocardial infarction and drop dead! There is an upside, after you realise your not going to die and it was only a near death experience. That it has the greatest panoramic views of the whole city. Particularly good at sunset!!
