Who doesn't love a free night out? I know we certainly do. As travellers, we are always looking for great entertainment and as we float into new towns, we always check out the City Council's upcoming events. This is something that we never really did when we were living in Melbourne, however when we return, we will certainly make much more use of the Council free event series.
If you happen to be in or around Townsville over the coming few weeks, you are in for a treat! The Council is putting on a show (they must have known we were coming to town). Check out these free events coming up in Townsville.
August 28 Live Music at Lunchtime in the Perfumed Gardens
Head down to The Strand at twilight to experience the wonder of the Townsville Night Markets. This great event is held monthly from May - December and houses over 200 stalls selling and displaying crafts, food, fashion and lifestyle options right on the water's edge.
The markets kick off at 5pm and run until 9.30pm. Be sure to come along even if you're not shopping to enjoy the life entertainment, the vibe and best of all, the view of the sunset from this impressive part of the world.
