"Billabong Nature Sanctuary" Townsville Things to Do Tip by evenovak

Townsville Things to Do: 40 reviews and 54 photos

It's fun, just like everyone says.
You walk around, gaze admiringly at nature, pet a koala, eat an expensive snack (by U.S. standards) and go home with fond memories.
By the way, Australian "scones" are soft, small, sweet rolls. The price here is similar to elsewhere in Townsville: $7AUD for 2rolls, jelly, cream and tea.
If you arrange the trip through the travel agent in the middle of Flinders Mall (highly recommended and helpful, by the way), you can arrange a shuttle for about $19AUD per person.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
