Townsville’s award winning foreshore redevelopment, The Strand is comprised of 2.1 kilometres of linear coastal parkland with 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 public art elements.

Restaurants, kiosks, surf lifesaving clubs, the Historic Tobruk Olympic Pool, and a saltwater swimming enclosure are also located along the Strand Promenade.
