"South Townsville where tourists and locals love"

Locals love South Townsville due to Palmer Street Restaurant strip. If you are going to go to dinner that is where you end up as there is a huge choice of dining options. There are hotels along Palmer Street as well as the South Bank Convention Centre so there is always people in Palmer St both locals and tourists alike. There are many new unit complexes in the suburb which suits people that want to be in walking distance to the restaurants and CBD. As you move away from Palmer St the homes become older in style with many Queenslanders which makes the suburb popular. Have personally owned a house in South Townsville and currently own a Rental unit in South Townsville I can honestly say that both have almost no vacancy and always popular with tenants and tourists.

"Why I love Belgian Gardens"

Belgian Gardens is a pretty suburb with great shops and school. Both my children went to Belgian Gardens school. It is a small school at the base of Castle Hill so there is plenty of greenery at the school. It is a lovely school with many families from the surrounding suburbs using it as first choice for their children to attend primary school there. Many of the kids then go on to attend either Townsville Grammar or Pimlico High School for secondary schooling. Emphasis on Hair (on Buncock St) is a wonderful hair salon that I have been going to for over 10 years now. It is very popular with locals that live on this side of the hill. Butcher on Bundock is raved about by every one in Townsville and has an outstanding array of meats and specialties to make entertaining simple. Right next door is Essentially Fresh Deli which has amazingly fresh fruit and veges and a great range of specialty items which are great for entertaining. Across the road is Medical Centre that is open to 11pm, dentist, gym, and much more. There is a great post office down the road with really friendly staff. Fish And Chip Shop, Thai Restaurants, mini marts, and so on. You don't have to leave the suburb because it has everything there, but it is so close to the Strand, Castle Hill, Castletown Shopping Centre and the CBD.
