Quartel de Jezzine

Free admission

Por mais de um século, o Quartel de Jezzine protegeu Townsville da ameaça de um ataque externo. Canhões e armas foram colocados no alto do promontório, voltados para o horizonte azul, prontos para lutar. Hoje, após uma remodelação massiva e moderna do antigo quartel histórico, o Quartel de Jezzine é um parque público que não apenas honra seu passado militar, mas também mantém a herança cultural de seus povos aborginais nativos. Localizado na extremidade oeste da popular Strand à beira-mar de Townsville, o Jezzine Barracks oferece vistas deslumbrantes da Rock Pool e da Magnetic Island.

Percorra a trilha de caminhada nas horas antes do pôr do sol, parando para admirar o jardim de esculturas e homenagens militares históricas. Do alto de um grande promontório rochoso, toda a costa agitada de Townsville fica diretamente a seus pés, e não há lugar melhor na costa de Townsville para desfrutar do nascer ou do pôr do sol. Para uma visão mais aprofundada do passado militar, visite o Museu do Exército de North Queensland que está localizado bem aqui no Quartel, onde as exibições vão desde os primeiros dias das defesas originais da Austrália, até os conflitos modernos e os homens que protegeram e servido.

The basics

Once an important military post in Townsville, the Jezzine Barracks are now a large heritage precinct at the northern end of The Strand, known as the Kissing Point Headland, that celebrate the military and Aboriginal heritage of the area. The precinct contains 32 specially commissioned public artworks, lookout points, playgrounds, a coastal boardwalk, and more. The area also has long-standing importance to the local Aboriginal people, and this is honored in some of the design and landscaping of the precinct. If you’re interested in the military history of the area, don’t miss the Army Museum of North Queensland, within the area. Most travelers visit the Jezzine Barracks independently while exploring Townsville.

The Strand Rockpool

Townsville is located in tropical Northern Queensland, and after exploring the Jezzine Barracks area you’re likely to feel quite hot. Cool down with a swim in the nearby Strand Rockpool, a public saltwater open-air pool, also at the northern end of The Strand. This facility allows you to swim without the worry of deadly stinging jellyfish (which are sometimes present in the sea) year-round.
