This is a lovely apartment and in a prime location close to swimming, playgrounds, eateries and supermarkets. Well presented with washing and kitchen amenities. Not suitable for young children with only 'buckled' flyscreen on 4th floor windows and glass table tops that move.

We came for a visit to Townsville to watch the cricket and thought we'd book something close to the stadium. Location is good here with shops and eats around plus the public pool is impressive and a great way to cool off. Facilities were nice and comfortable and all was secure.

Itara apartments are in a great location on the Ross River, with lovely paths for the kids to ride their scooters on. The cafe is a short stroll and is great for Breakfast.

Great view of the river from the balcony and in the morning sitting watching the walkers with their dogs and the occasional runners was very relaxing. Fitted out quite well, if I were to make a comment, it would be the couch is a little small for two. Walking distance to restaurants.
