    I am going to Townsville, QLD for the first time this New year holiday break.
    Can you guys and gals recommend me places or things to see/ do ?
    What is the must see or most iconic thing / place that is uniquely Townsville ?
    Thanks

    uniquely townsville, go out on probably any given night and watch drunk AJs hit on drunk girls?

    haven't been there for years but magnetic island was nice

    Ah good ol Townsville.. Magnetic Island is the obvious place to hit.

    Head up castle hill - in the late afternoon is nice

    The strand is not bad these days, theres some cool military stuff up the far end, with fairly new running tracks and boardwalks, and the eating drinking etc precinct (s) on both sides of the river up the other end are quite good too.

    Grab dinner from Tony's Pizza for shits n giggles, very old place straight out of the 70s, old Italian couple run it, pizzas arent bad either

    if you have a car head towards ingham. about halfway up there is a turnoff up the mountains to the creek and waterfalls that you can swim in.
