Summary

Townsville offers something for everyone.

Description

Townsville is great for close climbing, with most areas within half an hour drive and many different styles of climbing on offer. From the large as life boulders of "Harvey's Marbles" & "Magnetic Island" to the high quality trad and sport climbs of "Mt Stuart" and the 100m multi pitches of "Castle Hill" you will easily find something to suit you.

Access issues

Most areas are free to access to the public, some are closed for short times during the year due to car, bike and running races and other events such as flooding, bushfires or landslides after heavy rain but they will open again soon after.

Where to stay

Townsville offers many hotels and camping grounds ranging in prices.

Ethic

Marking the rock at the start of the climbs used to be the norm, this is now frowned upon.
