Getting Around

Townsville's public transport system incorporates bus services operated by Sunbus, which provides regular and efficient services between major points throughout the city. Taxis can generally be found outside major hotels and tourist sites, are easily hailed on the street, and usually operate 24 hours a day throughout the metropolitan area. Ferries and water taxis operate regularly to Magnetic Island and Palm Island. Car rental agencies can be found in the city and travellers planning on exploring further afield should opt for a rental car, which is the most convenient option when exploring the wider region.
