We enjoyed bike riding along the sea front at the Strand for 2.2 kms, in Townsville. The views to Magnetic Island are beautiful. We will go there on our next trip here in a few weeks. We had our first swim at the salt water pool at one end of the Strand. It was a sunny 28 degrees and the water was a lovely 21 degrees. We bought tasty fish & chips near the pier at Harold's.
We strolled along the shady river bank walk and saw waterlilies, ducks and a number of turtles. we are keen to swim in the lovely pools here next time.
