Is Townsville's Winter Already Over?!

A heatwave is a comin'!

There are certain things that only people in Townsville can understand. Like how good a Frosty Mango is. That the Goat Track isn’t actually the Goat Track. And that just because it’s winter it doesn’t mean it’s gonna be cold. Like, at all.

In fact, this winter weekend is gonna be the hottest in a while, with Saturday’s temps expected to hit the 30 mark. That’s 4 degrees hotter than the usual for this time of year, and about 20 degrees hotter than 90% of the rest of the country, who are currently dying a slow and painful death of winter cold.

If you’re heading down to the Strand to cool off then make sure you check out the Townsville Tri-Fest, which will have a series of Triathlons kicking off around the North Ward area.

Other great places to get your winter chill on include:

-Alligator Creek, just 20 minutes drive from the City.

- Horseshoe Bay on Maggie Island, complete with some great pubs and cafes.

-Jourama Falls, with fresh cascading waterfalls, this is the perfect spot to cool down.

So enjoy your Winter. And remember to Slip Slop Slap….
