Driving tips in Townsville

 Townsville car hire is the best way to see the city. The Great Barrier Reef skirts past the town and Magnetic Island sits large off the coast of the city. This island is easily reached by ferry and "Fantasea" takes you over in style. Marvel at the sea life and coral that claims this little part of the world as home.

Sitting high above the city is Castle Hill which not only is a great place to hike and exercise but famous for its stark rock cliff that has a rather large stick figure painted on it. This symbol is nick named " the Saint". Park the rental car for the day and enjoy the great outdoors.

Townsville also has a brilliant Food Culture and its restaurants are stunning. Talented Chefs seem to inhabit this area and the test is in the food. 'Touch of Salt', 'The Watermark' and 'Michels' are personal favorites.
