Why not book a stay with us at Mariner’s North Holiday Apartments and treat your loved one to a special romantic weekend away? With so much to see and do in Townsville we’ve put together our top five romantic ways to spend an anniversary, Valentine’s Day or any other occasion –  guaranteed to show your special someone how much you care.

1 – Prepare a delicious Brekkie to enjoy on your balcony 

Welcome in the day with breakfast on your self-contained Townsville holiday apartment balcony with exceptional ocean views. There’s no better way to show you care than by whipping up a delicious breakfast for your loved one. Think bacon and eggs, croissants, fresh berries and freshly squeezed orange juice. There’s a Cole’s supermarket just minutes away from our accommodation where you can stock up on supplies and your fully-equipped kitchen has everything else you’ll need to create that romantic meal for two.

2 – Dip your toes in the sand

Step out of your apartment and down on to the sand for a romantic stroll along the beach. The Strand offers 2.2 kilometres of world-class beachfront promenade, lined with palm trees. Walk out onto the Strand Pier or stop off at one of the many cafes and restaurants along the way for a leisurely coffee or delicious bite to eat.

3 – Take a dive together or a sunset cruise

Our tour booking partners, Experience Oz, offer some excellent Townsville tours and attractions that you can enjoy during your stay.  Explore beneath the ocean with a Yongala Wreck Dive, visit the Museum of Underwater Art and snorkel part of the Great Barrier Reef and more.

4 – Take a dip at Kissing Point

At the base of Kissing Point Fortification at the far end of The Strand promenade is the Strand Rockpool. Apart from being in an aptly named area for romance, why not enjoy a swim in this stinger-resistant seawater rockpool! (Please be sure to check lifeguard hours and only swim when patrolled, rockpool is closed on Wednesdays).

5 – Take a day trip to Magnetic Island

Hop on the ferry from nearby Breakwater Marina and make the 20 minute trip across to Magnetic Island where you’ll find 23 bays and beaches, Northern Australia’s largest colony of koalas, bushland hikes, coral reefs and much more to explore.
Find out more about the return ferry from Townsville to Magnetic Island.
