Things to Do in Townsville
Our Southbank hotel sits in the heart of Townsville with plenty of things to do
Rydges Southbank Townsville offers the perfect location to experience this North Queensland destination. With more than 300 days of sunshine every year, Townsville is the perfect location to explore.
From premier shopping, dining and entertainment to the world’s largest living reef aquarium, our Southbank hotel is the gateway to Magnetic Island and the Great Barrier Reef. Just a short walk from the hotel is the Townsville Maritime Museum and The Museum of Tropical Queensland. The Victoria Bridge will take visitors to the newly rejuvenated Flinders Street shopping precinct.
Considerable ties to the Defence Force and an ever-growing mining population ensure this burgeoning regional centre will continue to go from strength to strength.
The mighty North Queensland Cowboys and Townsville 400 call the area near our accommodations home.
