Many Peaks is a wonderful walking trail but best done very early morning in summer...5am start. Takes approximately 3.5 hours. Take water. Such beautiful views back to Townsville.

It's a long hike up and a longer hike down. Park at the beach end of the trail and return along the flat wetland of the Town Common. Stunning views of the northern beaches from the ridgeline. Bring water and ibuprofen.

The walking tracks at the Townsville Common/ Many Peaks at Cape Pallarenda offer a great afternoon or morning opportunity for bird watching. Historically the Common was an excellent spot to view Brolgas and other smaller birds. It is worth making the effort to be there...More

This is a fabulous local walk to do while living in or visiting Townsville. Start as early as you can as it's 5 hours with breaks and the sun gets hot at lunchtime even in Winter. We were glad to finish by 12.30 as the...More
