East Coast Australia - Townsville to Innisfail (Chapter)
This is the Townsville to Innisfail chapter from Lonely Planet's East Coast Australia guidebook.
Between the tourist magnets of Cairns and Airlie Beach, Townsville is a living, breathing city with a pulse. Although North Queensland's largest urban centre is often bypassed by visitors, it has a surprising number of attractions.
- hear the fascinating story behind the mossy, ruined castles of Paronella Park on an atmospheric day or night tour
- skydive onto a reassuringly soft, sandy landing at Mission Beach
- tackle the 32km-long Thorsborne Trail on pristine Hinchinbrook Island
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Townsville & around, Magnetic Island, Ayr & around, Lucinda, Cardwell & around, Hinchinbrook Island, Tully, Dunk Island, Mission Beach, and Innisfail & around.
