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.

Great place that easily accomodates large groups!

4 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tiramula Lodge. It is in a great location with a bus stop down the end of the main street which makes getting around Magnetic Island a breeze if you need to use the bus services. The property is fantastic with full air-conditioning (a nice reprieve from the hot tropical weather and days exploring in the sun), a great deck, multiple fridges and other seating areas inside and outside. The pool is lovely however one recommendation would be to put up a shade sail over the pool as it was very hot (maybe they are waiting for the trees to grow a bit more). Kitchen is well equipped and the laundry has a washing machine and dryer although there is also a washing line and things dry quick in the hot sun! Booking, check in and out was all very straight forward and easy. Lots of parking areas if taking vehicles to the island. Highly recommended.

Top maintenance and friendly dogs

5 of 5
Maintenance issues and free but mandatory concert. Upon arrival we found out that the dishwasher machine was broken, you couldn't close the door. The lock of a ground level sliding door was easy to open from outside. This doesn't gave us a secure feeling. The surround sound of the homecinema was also not working. We mentioned everything to the friendly owner, Steve, and he took action right away, so all problems were solved within two days. So from our 5 nights stay we still had three to enjoy the property and area. There are 5 big dogs close by and we loved to hear them speak, was great to sit on the terrace and to listen to their communication with the neighbor dogs.
