A large artificial concrete wall construction with welcome words is then in the city, which represents the end of this stage: Townsville! For the Europeans, Townsville will be once again a city deservedly called “City”, as it represents one of the largest in Queensland.
For tourists, the city has a beautifully constructed pedestrian zone (Flinders Mall), a beach, beach promenade, an artificial sea-water lagoon, water games for children directly on the beach and the excursions to the island of “Magnetic Iceland” as well as the great barrier reef.
