Queensland & the Great Barrier Reef - Townsville to Innisfail (Chapter)
This is the Townsville to Innisfail chapter from Lonely Planet’s Queensland & the Great Barrier Reef guidebook.
For a low-key getaway, this stretch of north Queensland is the real deal: from Townsville to Magnetic Island’s national park, walking trails and wildlife; Charters Towers and Ravenswood, which offer an accessible slice of the dusty outback; and forested Hinchinbrook and Dunk Islands.
- hear the fascinating story behind the mossy, ruined castles of Paronella Park on an atmospheric day or night tour
- cheer on the Cowboys, north Queensland’s revered National Rugby League Team, or the Crocodiles National Basketball League team, in Townsville
- restaurants & accommodation
