Location - Townsville, North Queensland, Australia

Bushland Beach is a coastal suburb and beach approximately 15 kilometres north of the Townsville CBD, Queensland, Australia. The Bushland Beach community is situated just west of the mouth of Bohle River, the beach itself stretching approximately five kilometres further north-west to the mouth of Black River.

Take a stroll along the Bushland Beach, walk along the dirt tracks up to Mount Low, or wander the salt pans near the mangroves, boat ramp, and Stoney Creek. There's plenty of hidden geocaches to find and several parks to take your kids to the playground.

Mount Low

Even though Mount Low is just a small mound of dirt, it offers another perspective of the area with some stunning views of the surrounding landscape. Ride your bike, walk your dog, or find some the the geocaches in the area while taking in the views.
