Must see · Landmark · Tourist Spot
One of the city’s most exciting and dynamic areas is Riverway, offering a combination of commercial, cultural, and leisure/sports activities. This riverfront parkland, opened in 2006, stretches for 11 km (7 mi) along the Cross River. The nearby business district, where you can visit a number of trendy shops and cafés, is connected to the parkland area by a pathway stretching along the shore. Enjoy a variety of water sports at the site’s calm lagoon, or drop by the nearby cricket stadium (with a capacity of over 10,000 visitors) to experience the famous Australian game day atmosphere. A convenient arts center and gallery are located in the area as well, hosting regular exhibitions, plays, and concerts. Planning Townsville trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

  • Lovely walkways alongside the river where water lillies and wildlife abound. The council workers even high pressure wash the concrete paths!!! A perfect setting for a well patronised pool complex...  more »
  • This is awesome, lots of places to walk and chill out. After visiting here we went kayaking with river sea kayaking, great day!!  more »
  • Beautiful park, pity it's taking so long for the rebuild to happen after the floods. It really is quite an eye sore and an inconvenience (especially if mobility isn't great). But generally it's a really lovely spot to relax and enjoy.
  • Great fun until you think about the stranger pee but it's good
