This is a must for anyone who wants to know about Townsville and its military history. May sound dry but it was truly amazing how steeped in military history the city is. Toby our guide was ex Army and a local and his knowledge and enthusiasm made the whole tour feel very personalised. The stories he tells make the history come alive. The Army museum is included on the tour and it is a truly comprehensive and fascinating place. I really had no idea how much the military, RAAF and Army have played and still play in the life of Townsville. We did the afternoon city tour as well so had lunch as part of the tour at a beautiful old restaurant near the botanical gardens. We even fitted in a walk around the gardens after lunch. The whole tour was informative, well organised and the passion Toby demonstrated made it special. Even if you aren't a military buff this tour is still very well worth the time.
