Great for fitness and a slower pace, Castle Hill offers 360° views taking in the Strand, Magnetic Island, city, Pallarenda as far as the eye can see. A must do, in fact more than once to take in the different light and times.

Looking for a great view of Townsville and surrounds? make your way up Castle Hill - drive, or for the fitter among us, walk or bike. The tracks are well marked, they are a quite a few steps so you can expect jelly-leg if you haven't exercised for awhile.

Early morning and dusk usually sees the local fitties out, lots of them.
Take an early morning drive up and watch the sun rise. The road is windy but well maintained and the views aware great. Take a selfie on the rock wall with views of Maggie in the background.
Its a fun road on a motorbike!

I hiked up Castle Hill with a few of my friends. We are all about 20, and relatively fit, but we were sweating buckets by the time we reached the top. It's a pretty steep incline, but the hike up only took about half an hour. We used a combination of the road and the goat trail. If you can, be sure to go at dusk as the sun is setting over Townsville. It gets pretty crowded, as locals use the road and the trails for exercise, but the views are well worth it!

A must visit. You can walk up to the top on the road, be fit to do so or as we did took the Crikey Trikey Joy Ride. A three wheel motorcycle ride. Excellent information about the the area from Steve. if walking to the top there are a number of off road walking trails.
