Night markets

Enjoy these evening markets, they get very busy but I do enjoy the atmosphere, visited them whenever we are in Townsville when they are on

My favourite thing to do is walk around the whole complex down to the weir across the motorway bridge and back. I love when The Pinnacles Gallery has exhibitions on. A dip in the lagoon is amazing any day of the year.

I love riverway. Its a beautiful place. Big shady trees. Play equipment for the littles. A gorgeous pool & walking paths right around. The only thing im disappointed with is the closure of the restaurant there. It was lovely going down for breakfast. But its still an amazing place for a nice few hours with the kids :)

Riverway has a lot to offer including a cafe, swimming pool, art gallery as well as a great walking path and regular markets and events. I generally use Riverway as a place to go for a morning walk and have witnessed some stunning sunrises over the river. Definitely worth a visit.

Everyone who comes to visit Townsville is always amazed that we have such a beautiful public pool - for FREE! There's a deeper area where you can swim laps, a very shallow area for little kids, and the rest of the 2 pools are medium depth, nice for a casual swim, or just to splash around on a hot day....

Not much work has been done in the past. It is actually a disgrace. Council is trying to sort out the problem. They have a long way to go.

Riverway is a lovely relaxing place to walk, run, ride, picnic or just sit by the river and feed the ducks and turtles. I like to sit on the banks and watch the sun rise on the Thuringowa Drive side, or walk over the Weir Bridge to the Riverside Garden side and watch the sun set near the bridge we... More
