"Great place to live"

Fantastic family location. Best school in Townsville is the local PUBLIC Annandale Primary School. The Ross River walk way is fantastic for family bike rides look out for the "turtle bridge" just ask a local they are really friendly. Remember the mozzie repellent local pharmacist will advise the best (Ross River virus and Dengue Fever are transmitted by mosquito bite) My family stayed in Annandale for years and had no problems with RRV or DF. Make sure the children and pets dont play with the cane toads..they are toxic. Dont forget to check out the local strand theres a great water park for the littlies.
