The Long Weekend

The Long Weekend

By Sean Mcbain on Apr 12 2017

Whether you're celebrating Easter with the family or simply enjoying a well-deserved long weekend, you may be thinking that nothing will be open for you to actually do. 

Fortunately in Townsville there is still plenty going on, which presents a great opportunity to get out and enjoy what our city has to offer. 

Many of Townsville's greatest highlights will be open this Easter weekend for a fun outing with family and friends. 

As close as you can get without getting wet, REEF HQ is filled with spectacular educational exhibits of marine life and plenty of activities for the kids. 

Magnetic Island 
A quick, pleasant ferry ride over to Maggie is the perfect mini-break for family and friends or just for yourself for some peace and quiet. With so much packed into one beautiful island, everything seems both conveniently close by but wondrously disconnected with walking trails, wildlife, beaches, great places to dine and wonderful hotels to stay in. 

Museum of Tropical QLD 
A wonderfully informative experience filled with the natural beauty you can find throughout our region, the Museum of Tropical Queensland is the perfect daytrip for the family and kids. Closed on Good Friday however, you still don't want to miss out! 

Billabong Sanctuary 
Pythons, Crocodiles, Wombats, Koalas, Birds and a whole lot of fun times. A highlight of the region which gets you up close and personal with some of Australia's most loved and famous animals, this is sure to be worth the trip on your long weekend. 

Our office will be closed Friday 14th and Monday 17th so if you are in need of our services beforehand please do get in contact with us now!

Whatever your plans may be this Easter, we at L.J. Hooker Aitkenvale would like to wish you an enjoyable long weekend and a well deserved rest.
