Townsville chiropractor recommends The Strand Park.
The Strand is a 2.2km world-class beachfront walkway located on the foreshore in Townsville and is popular for runners, walkers and kids with bikes and scooters. It even has weddings happening every week there.
The strand has bike and walkway paths, safe swimming beaches and stunning picnic spots. It also has multiple playgrounds, exercise stations, a water park and restaurants and bars with spectacular views across to Magnetic Island
You can enjoy the shade of the palm trees with a good book, the ocean breezes with coffee or have a meal at one of the restaurants or cafes there. Alternatively you can treat the whole family to a free barbecue or beach picnic. Maybe just grab a gelato and just enjoy the stunning views.
There are no waves on the beaches of the strand due to the reef and is summer you can swim safely in the pool or stinger enclosure located there.
