Accessing Townsville Guide

The Accessing Townsville Guide has been developed to assist people to access the various shops, restaurants, attractions, and services Townsville has on offer. It also helps to identify appropriate and accessible accommodation. It is a valuable tool for everyone with limited mobility including people with a disability, seniors, and parents with strollers.
