We love to travel but when we’re not travelling we’re having Fun in the Sun at home.
I wrote this post a couple of days ago when the temperature range was 17 to 26 degrees Celsius – a not unusual Winter’s day.
Perfect outdoorsy weather to whisk our Kiwi visitors off to Strand Ephemera, the bi-annual Townsville art exhibition held on the Strand Beach foreshore. The 2km each way walk could only do us good after all our socialising!
The Strand is home to Ephemera for 10 days and 10 nights from 31st July, 2015. As well as being an exhibition Ephemera is a competition with a first prize of $AUD10,000 and a people’s choice award of $AUD2,000.
#About Townsville is the successor of Tuesday in Townsville. It is the Tag I use to promote Townsville and life in North Queensland.
You can see more #StrandEphemera photos on my Instagram page.
Have you been to Strand Ephemera? Winter is a lovely time to visit the north so why not jump on a plane now!

Car Parking. Off-street at Jezzine Barracks Redevelopment. On-street along the Esplanade and North Ward streets.
If visiting with small children, the Exhibition might best be tackled in two shorter visits.
There are plenty of existing bars, cafes and restaurants along the foreshore for refreshments.
Townsville can be reached by air/bus and rail through Cairns in North Queensland and Brisbane in Southern Queensland.
