Townsville enjoys a tropical climate with less rainfall than elsewhere in the Tropics due to the city's geographical location. Winter in Townsville brings blue skies, warm days and cool nights due to south-easterly trade winds. Summer brings balmy temperatures and increased rainfall with thunderstorms usually starting in late October. As the largest urban centre in North Queensland, Townsville is a major commercial and tourism hub, providing opportunities for both business and recreation. Townsville is small enough for you to escape the hustle and bustle of big city life, yet large enough to host major events including sports, music, theatre and festivals. A family-friendly city where you can make the most of the great outdoors through rainforest hikes, mountain biking, and snorkelling or scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef.
