The coast immediately north of Townsville has long been a relatively remote and little used area and today remains much the same. Between the mangrove-fringed Bohle River and Cape Pallarenda is 7 km of sandy and rocky coast, most of which is now contained within the Cape Pallarenda Environmental Park, with little development other than walking tracks. There are seven beaches along this low energy and generally north facing section of coast.

Long sandy beach with mangroves and low salt bush for shade. Some areas behind bushes provide a more private area. Low tide provides a long walk to the water, but it is the best time to get there and leave well before high tide for easier access. Crowd: A good mix during the warmer months with couples and singles that will play.
Once thought of as merely a city to pass through on your way to holiday somewhere more interesting, Townsville, Australia is now a vibrant destination in itself.
