Helloworld Travel Tips - Townsville

Clint Steindl - Townsville Crocodiles

How long have you lived in the city?

 This is my second year living in Townsville. Although I have spent some time up here as I’m from Mackay, so it is only 4hrs down the road. 

Where is your favourite spot to:

Have a late breakfast:

'Jam Corner’ on Palmer Street. Huge breakfast menu to choose from. I go with the Eggs Benedict on toasted Brioche w/ Bacon. Coffee is up there with the best of them too.

Go for lunch?

 'Cbar' on ’The Strand’ is the pick, especially on a Sunday. Calamari Salad is great. Perfect location next to Longboards Bar and Grill.

Take someone for dinner?

 My partner and I like to go for dinner at Longboards Bar and Grill on The Strand’. Buffalo Chicken Wings and the Spanish Mackerel Fish Tacos are the go to meals. Great views of The Strand and Magnetic Island.

Go for a drink?

For a quiet one, Water Bar and Grill or The Brewery. If you are getting serious and up for a good time on a Saturday Night then Mad Cow Tavern is the place to be. If you are looking for some fun on a Sunday afternoon, the Seaview Tavern will be getting pretty lively.

Go for some fun?

 If you are into Fishing, there is plenty of room for it and if you hook onto a Barra you will have a good time. A lot of land based spots along the Ross River. Even better if you have a boat to head out to the Cape or the Reef. Big NRL community here in Townsville, so the NQ Cowboys are a good night out to go watch.

Shop?

 The place to go shopping is ‘Stockland Townsville.” Biggest range of shops/brand retailers in Townsville. I think the main stores for the guys on the team is Footlocker and EB Games.

 Any hidden gems?

 During the wet season, Crystal Creek (to the North) and Alligator Creek (to the south) are good Freshwater swimming holes. Can be extremely busy during Summer when the water is running heavily.

Where is the best coffee?

‘The Spirited Goat' at The Precinct. Great location close to Practice Facility and Home. Pineapple and Mango smoothie is awesome too.

What is the one thing people should do when visiting?

 1. Get to a Crocs game.

2. Take in the amazing views from the top of Castle Hill looking back down on the city or out over Cape Pallarenda and Magnetic Island.
