Townsville is most famous for being one of the major gateways to the Great Barrier Reef. One of the natural wonders of the world, the Barrier Reef is home to a bewildering variety of charismatic and colourful fish and corals, and it's truly one of the finest diving sites around. If you take Cairns to Townsville flights, you can join boat trips, rent scuba kit and take as many lessons as you need to be able to enjoy the beauty of the deep. But there's more to life in Townsville than diving. You could also:

  • Visit Jezznine Barracks to learn about Queensland's important role in the Second World War
  • Head to the Billabong Sanctuary to see local wildlife in a natural setting
  • Tour the Museum of Tropical Queensland with exhibits about the reefs, rainforests, dinosaurs and even a Lego room to keep the kids entertained
Anyone booking Cairns to Townsville flights should also make sure they stop over on Magnetic Island. Situated a few miles offshore, Magnetic Island has secluded beaches, walking trails and campsites aplenty. It's a beautiful place to learn how to dive or just to enjoy the warm tropical waters, and it's just 30 minutes from Townsville city centre, so anyone can visit. And, if you don't mind venturing further afield, the beautiful Whitsunday Islands are unmissable as well.

If you are staying in Townsville, many of the coastal sites and inland attractions are a few hours away by road. For example Airlie Beach can be reached in a few hours, which makes it a great idea to rent a car in Townsville during your vacation. That way, you can be free to see everything at your own pace, and with room for the whole family to relax.
