Make a holiday villa in Townsville, Australia your home away from home

Set on the coast of Northern Queensland, Townsville is a sunny holiday resort that offers a wealth of water-based activities, as well as the classic outback experience on land. Townsville holiday villas would be ideal for a relaxing beach getaway, while there’s also some excellent diving to be had off the coast here.

Things to do in Townsville, Australia

The nearest beach to Townsville self-catering accommodation is The Strand, and what makes it especially appealing for families is that Magnetic Island, which can be seen in the distance, helps to keep the waters calm, making it ideal for swimming. Still, there’s also a man-made lagoon for swimming on one side of the beach. Also next to the beach is a free water playground, which is great fun for kids, offering fountains and pools.

A host of other sublime beaches can be discovered with relative ease from a holiday villa in Townsville – if you’re in search of a little seclusion then Saunders Beach would be perfect. It stretches for a number of kilometres ensuring you’ll always be able to find an empty spot.

There are some excellent attractions to seek out during your stay at a villa in Townsville. A great one is the Reef HQ Aquarium, which is a showcase for Great Barrier Reef species. There are two main tanks here, with sharks and predators in one, and non-predatory species in the other. Magnetic Island would also be great for a day trip – it’s no more than half an hour by ferry and much of its area is composed of national park. You could come here to enjoy deserted beaches and explore the scenery via walking paths.

Excellent property; perfect for a getaway!

5 of 5
Safe, secure, clean, quiet and extremely comfortable property. No hesitation in recommending it to others! Stayed 8 nights here and we were so pleased with this property. Modern, well laid out with plenty of room and all modern amenities, including dishwasher. Great cooking facilities (stovetop, oven, microwave) & all necessary kitchen utensils. In a quiet neighborhood (5 minutes from Airport, but no disturbing airport noise); very close to shops and a short drive to The Strand & Castle Hill. Easy access to Highway. AC & fans in lounge room and all 3 bedrooms. Linen, including towels provided. Comfortable lounge suite, good TV and excellent internet reception. Lovely patio (balcony) to relax in after a big day of taking in the sights. Large, tidy garden. We also had use of the undercover garage with electric door. Property is on the first floor, with easy access via undercover stairs direct from the garage. Owner, Steve, was only a phone call away & always prepared to answer questions and take care of any requests promptly. We had a late flight out of Townsville and Steve was kind enough to give us a late check out at no extra cost. We will definitely stay here again,
