Things to see and do with a car rental in Townsville

Townsville is a wonderful Queensland town, brimming with adventures, sights, and things to do. Be sure to add a few of them to your itinerary when you’re in town.

Start by heading up Castle Hill and taking a hike around the top to check out the stunning views of the township. Then you can head down to The Stand for a dip in the water and a bite to eat next to the beach. The Reef HQ Great Barrier Reef Aquarium is another of Townsville’s must-sees, and the Botanic Gardens are always worth a visit for a relaxing stroll and a picnic.

If you’re looking for a longer adventure, try the drive south along Queensland’s glittering coast to the beautiful Airlie Beach in the Whitsundays. This picture-perfect area is almost too beautiful to be real, so it’s well worth exploring for yourself. Another option is to drive north to Queensland’s capital, Cairns. From here, you can explore the Great Barrier Reef, the Daintree Rainforest and much more.
