People who wish to move to Townsville need to be able to cope with living in the tropics. Summers here are extremely humid and temperatures can reach 44 degrees which is uncomfortable. Homes need to be air-conditioned if the occupant is to enjoy a restful nights sleep. Apart from the heat, Townsville is a lovely place. People are friendly, the shops are plentiful and the population is less than 500,000. There are many attractive holiday destinations around this North Queensland city that are well worth a visit, so come and stay.
