Modern Day Townsville

Castle Hill, a huge pink granite rock monolith 286 metres high dominates the Townsville sky-line,  it is just short of being proclaimed a mountain. In this mainly flat country side it is a great place for dedicated fitness fanatics to get a work out.

Another iconic building is the Cowboys Leagues Club. The Cowboys have a very strong dedicated following. It was semi-final the weekend we were in the bush camp on the outskirts of Charters Towers and the Cowboys faced the Sea Eagles. With eskies of beer and BBQed sausages and steak the fans gathered to party and cheer their side on.

Then the video ref made a bad decision.

The Cowboys lost and next day it was the talk of the town, front page news in the local paper and on the TV news. For days it was discussed in the pubs and especially the Cowboys league Club.

So that is my take on Townsville, a trilogy of Montage’s.

Today we will visit Matilda and see how she is getting on then walk to the Botanic Gardens.
