  Townsville by night
by bluesmama

From Castle Hill (290m) you get excellent views of the town and the sea. The biggest attraction in Townsville is probably Great Barrier Reef Wonderland. It has a real living reef and all kinds of reef fish and sharks and other marine animals. You can walk underneath the tank so that it feels like you are under the water. There's also a tank where you can touch clams and starfish and the like.
It was very interesting especially after having been to the reef. Suddenly we knew the names of all the things we'd seen. (Long since forgotten again though).
For a night out we went to Townsville Casino which was good fun and had excellent food.
And the we went to Magnetic Island.
