A group of us stayed here for 3 nights and went to the Broncos vs Cowboys game on the Friday night. We went to Magnetic Island on the Sunday. Mariners North is a wonderful place to stay and is close to everything.

To put it simply, there is no better apartment complex in Townsville than Mariners North. It wins everytime for its unbelievable location right on the sands of the Strand, it's convenience to facilities including restaurants and shops, the spaciousness of the apartments, it's cleanliness and presentation, but above all, the truly amazing outlook. We had six weeks there some years... More

We stayed in a two-bedroom apartment on the eighth floor which gave us great views of the Strand and of Magnetic Island - having two balconies enhanced these views! The apartment was really spacious and very well equipped. The location of the apartment is excellent with easy access to the Ferry to Magnetic Island and to the city centre.

Lovely three bedroom apartment with views over Townsville Esplanade, beach and Magnetic Island. Well positioned for walking along the Esplanade, restaurants in Flinders Street and the ferry to Magnetic Island. Nice pool too.
