My wife and I spent four nights at the Oaks Gateway, in a one bedroom apartment, last week. They are modern, clean, and situated in an excellent location for exploring Townsville. Being on Palmer Street, it's only a moment's walk to some of Townsville's restaurants and a short walk to the venues on offer along Flinders Street. Definitely recommend to... More

As there is only a limited number of these rooms, they are usually not listed on websites. The bonus of these rooms is that all of... More
