Really enjoyed Riverway. The pools are not too crowded so there is plenty of space and the surrounding parkland is lovely. Great for kids to ride, walk or run and a lovely place to swim.

Even though Townsville is very dry at the moment, it is still a nice walk along the river. Hot weather makes the free pools very attractive & life guards a bonus. With the free art gallery and new owners at the cafe, the Riverway is a much more attractive for locals and visitors alike. Nice way to spend some family... More
