these markets are new and run on the third Friday of the month. It was a really well organised market. Plenty of food stalls offering great food at reasonable prices. Lots of Thai, Malaysian and the usual assortment of fish and chips, Dagwood dogs and crepes. We had crepes, Mexican style and vegetarian which were huge and filled with great... More

A truly beautiful tranquil location! Situated beside the lovely Ross River, complete with fish, turtles, ducks, and eels for the kids to watch from the boardwalk and pontoon. Riverway comes complete with amazing pools supervised by lifesavers, picnic tables, bbqs, playgrounds and a purpose build walking/cycling track that is as long or as short as you feel like doing! ,...

We found this precinct by accident and were totally pleased with what it offered. the walk along the river was so relaxing and we enjoyed watching the turtles and ducks. We were very impressed with the huge FREE pools and that there were lifeguards on duty! We would make a point of returning here on our next visit to Townsville.... More

We visited here in an effort to escape the heat on our recent holiday. The kids had already swum in the stinger nets and Rockpool at the beach on the Strand, and we thought we might be in for a nice little pool at Riverway. Boy were we wrong! There are 2 huge lagoons, with lots of shady trees, children's... More

All I can say is wow, what an excellent job they have done of the area, I could easily live here. The lagoons are fantastic along with rope swings in to the river and sports facilities.

Riverway is a wonderful walk close to the Willows Shopping Centre. The paths are well formed, walks are clearly signposted and it is a easy and pleasant stroll. There are different walks in the area but I did the Riverway circuit which is 3.7 km. I walked across the Federation footbridge and headed west towards the motorway bridge before heading... More
