Take a break by the beach and enjoy all the comforts of a modern city!

Stay in the heart of Townsville’s City at Hotel Grand Chancellor and explore the coast with a half day adventure sail and tickets to idyllic Magnetic Island with Sealink Queensland.

With your accommodation within proximity to Townsville’s beach promenade, The Strand, this is the ideal way to start your beach holiday. Townsville’s Strand is considered one of the best beaches in North Queensland, offering spectacular views across to Magnetic Island and a thriving precinct popular for fitness fanatics and ocean lovers. Walk, run or hire an e-scooter, to explore the whole 2.5km length of the Strand. Throw in a line for a spot of fishing, enjoy the artworks along the Street Art Trail, grab a coffee or gelato at one of the many cafes, or simply find a shady spot all to yourself and soak up the stunning views.

Experience the wonders of the ocean onboard Big Mama Sailing with a half day adventure sail. Enjoy the views with a drink in hand or take the plunge and explore below the surface as well.

The fun doesn't stop there - a 20-minute ferry across to Magnetic Island, with SeaLink Queensland, will have you lounging on island time in no time.
