But what about Townsville? Townsville is a sprawling tropical city on the doorstep to the Great Barrier Reef, the wet tropics, the dry tropics and the inland tropical savanna. Almost everything in the city is ’10 minutes away’ in the car.
The city and suburbs have a lot of lush parklands, a fantastic beachfront, good eateries, lots of indoor and outdoor activities, entertainment, sports, good schools, a decent university, amenities and a relaxed-ish outdoor-living vibe.
According to the local radio station Townsville has more than 300-odd sunny days a year (far more than Brisbane) so there is very little need for neck ties, jackets, winter wardrobes and sombre dark clothing. You’ll need a hat (wide-brimmed).
