Townsville Recreational Boating Park

The Townsville Recreational Boating Park (TRBP) is the largest facility of its kind in Australia.

Located between Fifth and Seventh Avenues in South Townsville, Stage 1 of the facility is now open to the public, providing access to two of the four ramps (A and B), more than 200 CWT (car with trailer) parks, a large pedestrian jetty to fish from, an amenities building, a sheltered park area, BBQs and covered playground facilities.

Works on Stage 2 are now complete with an additional 113 car-with-trailer bays, wash down areas, two more four-lane ramps (C and D), CCTV cameras, extra lighting, landscaping and irrigation and a 30m pontoon as well as a 50m all-ability accessible pontoon among the new features.

The Seventh Avenue access has also been upgraded from Boundary Street to the boating park with new kerb and channel, pavements, footpaths, irrigation and landscaping.

This $25 million initiative is a sheltered, all-tide facility accessible for people with all abilities and access to ramps for boats with a mast height of less than six metres. The construction is being delivered by council with local company Civil Plus Constructions employed to build the main stormwater outlet.

The recreational boating park has been the result of a partnership between the Townsville City Council, the Queensland Government and the Port of Townsville, with input from the local boating community.
