a great stay at Magnetic Island, we sail across Cleveland Bay to spend a week in
Breakwater Marina exploring Townsville, a city too cool to bother with having
winter. The early August weather in this tropical city is glorious as we take a
walking tour of beautifully preserved colonial buildings and discover a
treasure trove of history in the Maritime Museum including a brilliant
exhibition about the wreck of the SS Yongala which foundered in a cyclone off
Cape Bowling Green in 1911. We stretch our legs in the sunshine along the
Strand and enjoy the quirky installation art, beautiful parklands, golden
beaches and military history of Kissing Point. New friends take us up to the
summit of Castle Hill for a spectacular sunset.
