Things to see and do with a car rental in the Townsville
Townsville has plenty of amazing attractions to check out, and there are many more to be discovered all over Queensland – all you need is a car to get you there.
Whether or not you’ve got kids in tow, the Reef HQ Aquarium and the Museum of Tropical Queensland make for great stops. The aquarium is home to 120 fish species, and the museum houses a number of fascinating exhibits – from shipwreck artefacts to an interactive rainforest display. Plus, don’t miss the views from Castle Hill, or the feeling of sand between your toes on the beach at The Strand.
Of course, you can also head out of town and discover more of Queensland’s best attractions. Cairns is a gorgeous four-hour drive from Townsville, with plenty of cute beachside towns to visit along the way. Once there, you can try a Great Barrier Reef tour or head further inland to visit the lush Daintree Rainforest. Or, make your way south for a coastal road trip to remember. You can check out the stunning Whitsunday Islands – the postcard-perfect scenery will make it tough to leave and impossible to forget.
