The Strand

What you can expect

This recently redeveloped hot spot is the go-to waterfront precinct in Townsville with exquisite ocean views, the 2.2km boardwalk is surrounded by an array of shops, restaurants, swimming holes, a water park and picnic points. The Strand is the perfect way to spend the afternoon with the whole family with a list of things to do, see and eat. The well-known water park is the perfect way to cool down after a long day in the Townsville heat. Wait for the giant bucket to drop and have some fun with the mounted water guns. If the ocean is your forte, wade in the rock pools or try your hand at stand up paddle boarding straight off the boardwalk. The Strand offers some of the best eateries in town but if eating out isn’t satisfying your appetite, pack a picnic and lounge under the palm trees for the afternoon.
