Occupying the north-eastern coast of North Queensland is Townsville. It’s a prosperous town with plenty of activities: there are various aquariums, wildlife sanctuaries and bike paths to explore. Getting outside is a must and you can follow cycle paths along the Ross River to the Coral Sea.

Rising sharply from the warm turquoise Coral Sea, Magnetic Island features sandy beaches, colourful rainbow coral, inviting waters, and bike paths lined with palm trees - all home to a rich diversity of seabirds and marine life.

Explore North Queensland on our outstanding Townsville and Magnetic Island Cycle tour and soak up paradise in Australia.
