We love to travel but when we’re not travelling we’re having Fun in the Sun at home in Townsville Australia.
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 in North Queensland.
Winter is the Season when Townsville really shines.
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 partying.

The Strand is home to Ephemera for 10 days and 10 nights from 26th July to 4th August, 2019. 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.

If visiting with small children, the Exhibition might best be tackled in two shorter visits.
