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.

Construction of Stage 2 is currently underway and will ultimately provide access to all 16 lanes (four 4-lane boat ramps inclusive of centre floating walkways),  two gang-way access pontoons and about 333 CWT parking spaces, additional landscaping with pathways and overflow car parking for individual cars.

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 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.
