Please, if anyone out there has a story that you think should be told that relates to Townsville’s Military History, it can be about an individual or an event that occurred - please drop me an email message outlining the story – Townsville’s Military history is extensive & I don’t have a monopoly on that knowledge - I am hoping with the help of others my knowledge will grow further over time.

I have had quite a few enquires asking if i operate on any other day besides the Sunday half Day Tour. We don't at the moment but plans are being made to operate the tour on another day most likely a Wednesday or a Friday. further tours are being developed, including a combined sightseeing and military tour package and will be a full day tour of approximately 7 hours which will include lunch and morning tea. At this stage it won't be in place until early next year - stay tuned for further Townville Day Tours.

Due to the demand for a midweek tour - we have started running a second tour on the Thursday - so we now operate on Thursdays & Sundays. Once the other tours are fully developed - a full day tour will be offered from early next year.

A lot has happened since our last blog we have moved from operating twice a week to offering tours 5 days a week. We have moved from offering the one basic tour to a selection of 3 tourist products. The first 2 products are our Standard Military Tour and our Signature Tour, which run for 4 hours & 5.5 hours respectively, which is longer and more detailed than the original product. For those that follow our progress - We have completed the research & trails for the sight-seeing tour which we have called our City History & Iconic Sights Tour it has been designed as an add-on tour for selection with either military tour and adds 2.25 hours to the other tours, so if selected, creates a full day of entertainment. We are proud of this product. It provides alot of information about Townsvilles general history and what Townsville is about today and of course takes in the best of the cities Iconic sights.

We have trailed a combination tour with REEF HQ called the Military & Marine Discovery Tour. This tour has been created as a custom tour available for larger group bookings such as the cruiseship industry. The details of this product should be available on our website soon.
15 April 14
We now have an online booking system which is in the trail phase but is available for use. An education tour package has been trailed, whilst it was well recieved. I feel it needs modification to cater for the larger group sizes that will be involved and I want this product to be the best it can be before release. I am confident it will be something special and available to all schools within our region.
