My parents came to stay in Townsville and had a fabulous time at Mariners North Holiday Apartments. Waking up to 'that' view is incredible! Our kids loved visiting and we all made good use of the pool, the tennis courts, and the BBQ. The apartment was clean, tidy and quiet. The service, friendly and very accommodating, and the location was... More

We stayed at Mariners North in January 2015 for a few days. The place is nice, however even though we booked months in advance, the notion of kids and a discount booking seemed to provide us with only a ground floor apartment even though I asked for a view if possible on the booking form. The apartments however were very... More

Tried all the hotels in Palmer Street ( foodies street). My only wish is I had found this hotel 9 years ago. It's the best by far, the view is spectacular. The Strand is on your doorstep with great dinning only 10 minutes walk away. The apartment has everything you would need for a perfect holiday. As well as being... More

We had unobstructed views right up The Strand, Magnetic Island and beyond. Our 2 bedroom apt.was spacious and spotless. Free tickets to 'Maggie' and entry to the heated pools, minutes walk away was a nice bonus. Problems with the TV and dishwasher were solved promptly. Great restaurants, walking paths and parks almost on the door step.

As you experienced we offer Fantastic Views from the apartments including The Strand & Magnetic Island.

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.

Hi Robyn, The Cowboys v Broncos game is the biggest match of the season in Townsville. It was a great weekend especially for the local fans as the Cowboys won. Mariners North is a short walk to the Cowboys Leagues Club where you can catch a bus to the 1300 Smiles Stadium for the games. Buses travel by express to... More

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.
