Ruth Prideaux is the Director of Sales at the Mercure Townsville. Here she shares her insider tips to this tropical paradise.
Why should corporates conference in Townsville?
Townsville is an excellent place to conference as it is an affordable option with great flight accessibility. We have access to great third party suppliers, as well as a range of experts in many fields to help support conferences from a range of industries.
What’s the one thing everyone should do while they’re in Townsville?
Depending on your interests, there are three things that I would recommend:
Magnetic Island: Only a 20min ferry ride to a wonderful island paradise. Great for a day trip. Reef HQ: Home of the world’s largest living coral reef aquarium.
Billabong Sanctuary: Where you can meet your favourite Australian Animals in a tropical bushland setting, on the shores of the billabong. The highlight for me is watching the crocodile feeding.
