Sister Cities

All of Townsville's Sister Cities are situated in the Asia-Pacific region.

Over the past 33 years, Townsville has signed Sister City agreements with six cities.

  • National Capital District Commission of Port Moresby, Papa New Guinea
  • Shunan - Japan
  • Iwaki - Japan
  • Changshu - China
  • Suwon - Korea
  • Foshan - China

The main aim of Sister City contact is to create friendship and understanding between peoples and to lay a foundation of goodwill and exchange for future generations. Each agreement focuses on the development of mutually beneficial trade and investment, the sharing of ideas, and the promotion of cultural understanding. Sister City relations are managed by the Townsville Sister City Committee, a group comprised of leaders in the areas of government, business, education, tourism, culture, community and sports.
