The Ross River winds it’s way from the Ross River Dam in the far suburb of Kelso through a series of weirs that tame it. In it’s lower reaches the Ross River or Ross Creek as it is correctly known in this Inner City location was looking quite picturesque so I stopped to take some photos. Mangroves line the City side of the creek which I think is rather cool.
The iconic Holiday Inn known locally as the Sugar Shaker. At it’s base is the pedestrian only Victoria Bridge.
High Rise Accommodation with The Rock Face of Castle Hill in the Background.
Rooney Street Bridge, Townsville.
Mt. Stuart looks close but is actually 23 km away.
All of the above photos were taken from Central Park which has a riverside walkway hugging the Creek for city commuters. The park itself is squashed between Dean Street and the creek and apart from it’s city views is quite unremarkable.

Oh Yes! There were also some trees in flower. This one is an Umbrella Tree.
Thanks for visiting Townsville with me this Tuesday. Do you have an underrated viewpoint where you live?
