Coral Coast Tourist Park
Coastal Townsville in Queensland is a tropical paradise and a gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, tropical islands and lush rainforests and famous for having more than 300 days of sunshine each year.
The largest city north of the sunshine coast, the city boasts art, music, restaurants, bars as well as spectacular natural beauty. Townsville is gateway to the World Heritage Listed Great Barrier Reef, home to Reef HQ, the world’s largest living reef aquarium and the Museum of Tropical Queensland. It’s a popular spot for divers, close to the famous wreck dive, SS Yongala. You can watch crocodiles being fed or get close to koalas, wallabies and wombats at the Billabong Sanctuary or see ships and artefacts at the Maritime Museum.
Visitors ramble through beautiful national parks and many take the short 20-minute ferry ride to Magnetic Island, with its palm-shaded beaches, snorkelling, kayaking and hiking trails. The 1.5-hour Forts Walk includes World War II forts and incredible views. Townsville is a thriving cultural centre with theatres, festivals, markets and sporting centres.
Dine al fresco in one of Townsville’s buzzing restaurants and cafes on balmy evening by the water or cook up a storm in the camp kitchen at Coral Coast Tourist Park. The park offers a friendly home-away-from-home, with a weekly meet and greet barbecue in the winter season where guests can swap travel stories. The facilities are immaculately clean and the pool and wading area provide a refreshing end to a day of sight-seeing and adventure.
