Australia's largest tropical city has become the premier destination for visitors to see the 'real' North Queensland.

It is a charming blend of old and new with modern facilities that include a casino, world-class museums, restaurants and shopping.

From here you can visit the outback, reef, rainforest and indulge in 'Life in the Tropics'.

We exist to create prosperity for our communities and value for our customers and shareholders through world-leading sustainable operations.

The Port of Townsville is Northern Australia’s largest container and automotive port, and the country's leading exporter of copper, zinc, lead, sugar, fertiliser and molasses.  Located in the heart of Northern Australia's largest city, the Port handles more than 30 diverse commodities and is a strategic defence and cruise port.

The Port of Lucinda is located 100 kilometres north of Townsville, and is the prime sugar export facility for the Hinchinbrook region.
