Stayed on the river front. The walks are flat and the views are great. The swimming complex is free and caters to various levels of swimmer. Bring some bread to feed the turtles and ducks on the river.

This river walk is lovely, nice wide paths. Great lagoon/pool for swimming. We walked down one side of the river the crossed the bridge and had lunch at the Riverway Hotel. We saw lots of bird life and enjoyed the peace and quite of the river. Only about 20 minutes drive firm Townsville.

We were hoping to be able to use the lagoon every day on our stay only to discover that it was closed for maintenance. Very disappointing

Riverway has a walking circuit around the river. Two lagoon pools set in parkland, river, cafe and art gallery. The pools are free as are the BBQ's in the park. Nearby there is a skate park and two childrens playgrounds.
