The Greek Festival they hold there each year is one of the best I've ever been to. It's free, the food and entertainment amazing, and the backdrop of the... More

We are international students in Townsville, and we come to River Way lagoon every sunday. It's great to walk along the river, and eat or have a drink at river way tavern, with a great view to the dam. The lagoon is the best pool area I have ever seen. We just can't believe it's free. It's so relaxing to... More

Riverway is a leisure Centre, there are the free pools,(that's right FREE). The Centre has great bbq facilities and picnic tables, a fully fenced children's playground, toilets (with warm showers), a café that is open from 7am-3pm. The view of the river is beautiful and there is plenty of shade. There are walking paths on both sides of the river.... More

Take a leisurely walk or bike ride along the river. Then cool off in the pool. Stroll through the arts gallery.

Mum and I visited Riverway today. Pools are great. Had a nice coffee before doing the walk along the Ross River which we really enjoyed. We saw lots if birds and I loved the big Lilly pads with their beautiful flowers out in bloom. An excellent place and well worth a visit!

A great place for a morning stroll and a chance to take photos. Many people take advantage of the swimming pool facilities and the shady park area.

We stayed in the adjacent apartments with an absolute river view to this complex which made our daily walks very enjoyable. We were also able to take advantage of the free use barbeques and parklands. We would have loved to have taken advantage of the free to use pools but it was a little cool for us.
