"Arguably the best suburb in Townsville... just ask locals!"

Amazing... as people of Townsville say...the problem with living in North Ward is that you don't want leave it. It is relaxing enough to feel peace but there is always activity so you always have things to do. Nice restaurants, cafes... the beach! The few boutiques in Gregory Street have more to offer than the shopping center because their exclusivity. if you can afford living there then do it. I love livingin North Ward.

"Beautiful life by the sea"

This is a really nice area that is central to everything Townsville has to offer. I stayed here with a friend during a holiday, and got to meet some the locals. They are very friendly. I would recommend this suburb to anyone looking to head north.

Wake up every morning walk to the beach for a swin or run along the strand, close to shops no loud noise from traffic, in the evening u can walk around at the beach its still warm and the water warmer the perfect place to live.

"I can't believe I'm so close to the beach for so cheap."

Hey there! Just moved into my North ward unit and I love it. I'm a street back from the Strand, I swim everyday after work and get fish a chips on the way back from the beach. The only downside is it gets a bit busy on the weekend. But for what I paid to be so close to the beach, I can deal with it :)

"A perfect spot for young singles/couples"

North Ward is sooo nice. Close to the beach, close to pubs but not as noisy as flinders street. Plenty of restraunts and parks to relax in. Also a short walk to the city and there is a Bi-lo in the heart too. I never used my car!
