Romantic Getaways From Townsville


Townsville, a trending and vibrant city, is right in the heart of the tropics of North Queensland. Like other towns and cities in the region, Townsville offers a gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, tropical island resorts and land, air and sea adventures.

If you’re looking for a place to enjoy a romantic getaway, Townsville is the place to be. Let’s take a look at 4 options you can choose from in the Townsville area.


#1 – Luxury Yacht Charter (M.Y. Flying Fish)

There’s no reason to have a landlocked holiday in the tropics. Instead, when you charter a luxury yacht like the M.Y. Flying Fish, your adventure will be mobile with the picturesque scenery constantly changing. Travelling by boat is one of the best ways to get around and see the area and onboard the Flying Fish, you’ll be doing it in style.

The yacht is moored at Townsville Breakwater Marina, so the city is the ultimate launchpad for your high seas adventure. Charter the boat for a day cruise or overnight, snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef and even visit some of the nearby island resorts.

The M.Y. Flying Fish provides the perfect romantic getaway.

#4 – Enjoy a picnic on a Sand Cay

Undine Sand Cay is a tiny sand atoll in the Coral Sea. It’s surrounded by coral reef teeming with sea life. Imagine, if you will, arriving by helicopter at this secluded location. You’ll get to see the sights from the air on the way out and on your return journey. Now that’s a unique experience!

While spending several hours relaxing on the cay, you’ll be treated to a picnic lunch under the shade of a beach umbrella. The lunch is complemented with sparkling white wine.

After lunch, you can either laze about on the sand or go swimming with the fish and the turtles, or simply cool off and relax in the shallows.

Undine Sand Cay and a helicopter ride combine to make the ultimate day of tropical adventure.
