I currently live in Bushland Beach. There is a small but decent IGA, bottle shop, fish and chip shop and hair dresser. Down near the water is the Bushland Beach Tavern and another fish and chip shop (that serves the best fish and chips in Townsville). 10 mins drive to North Shore they have a Maccas, Caltex, Woolies, Chemist, bottle shop, butcher, Flight Centre, Newsagents, Cafe, Civic Video and Dominoes. They are currently in the process of building a Bunnings. Also 10 mins drive in a different direction is Woodlands which has a Coles and Woolies, about 10 fast food and takeaway stores, newsagency and a gym.
