Townsville Marine Tourism Precinct
A major transformation of Townsville’s ferry and bus transport system is underway. The $54.2 million Townsville Marine Tourism Precinct will be a game changer for the region.

- facilities for buses
- a commercial precinct
- a brand new 90-room hotel.
The precinct will connect the central business district with major tourism offerings like Reef HQ Aquarium, Museum of Tropical North Queensland and the Museum of Underwater Art.
