Gates to Magnetic Island, historic forts, and Mount Cook

Townsville

Townsville is located in the north-east of Australia. The city is in the state of Queensland at a distance of about 1.3 thousand kilometers from its capital, Brisbane. Its proximity to the Great Barrier Reef makes it a center for the study of these amazing living organisms. Tourists should visit the Great Barrier Reef's large tropical aquarium, which is a collection of flora and fauna. Near the city is the Magnetic Island. Truly paradisiacal conditions have been created here for the flora and fauna inhabiting it — more than half of the island is given to the Magnetic Island National Park. In it, you can see the koalas, and swim near the island along with a variety of fish species. There are also historical forts dating back to World War II. The highest point of the island is Mount Cook, almost 500 meters high.
