ClientTownsville City Council

Place Design Group undertook the lead master planning role for The Townsville Strand, North Queensland’s award winning foreshore redevelopment.

The design involved developing beachfront parkland supported by public infrastructure elements that has resulted in overwhelming ongoing public support for the 2.2 kilometre linear parkland. Our design objectives were to provide a vibrant and colourful beachfront that provided a relaxing environment for the parkland users. The park provides a beachfront promenade used by thousands of locals and visitors for a stroll along Townsville’s foreshore whilst taking in majestic views over Cleveland Bay and Magnetic Island. The promenade is the primary element that links many attractions including playgrounds, exercise stations, the ever popular water park, picnic facilities and a variety of public art elements.
