Location - Townsville, North Queensland, Australia

Toomulla is a coastal town and suburb in the City of Townsville, Queensland, Australia. Toomulla is considerably more isolated than that of its surrounding beachside suburbs of Balgal Beach to the north and Toolakea to the south. Toomulla is a popular fishing and bird watching destination, and its facilities include a boat ramp and designated camping areas. Many take to the beach to walk their dogs and enjoy fishing or sunset photography.

Wetlands revegetation area is a day-use area with tables and chairs right beside Saltwater Creek. Crocodiles are present and camping is not allowed on the beach itself or by the creek. However, there is a rest spot at Herald Street, Toomulla with free overnight stays for a maximum stay of 48 hours. Shady and level campground right on a small inlet, and right near the beach with flushing toilets, and wheelchair access. If you're into fishing, the inlet and beach are easily accessible with the boat ramp nearby.

If you're into four-wheel driving or riding dirtbikes, turn off Between Wild Boar Creek and Surveyors Creek or follow the powerline track out to the beach. This is a great little fishing spot.

Douglas Hill, with its peak, is at an elevation of 48 metres lies close to the beach and provides some small seaward cliffs and boulders to break up the long bay.
