Cape Cleveland Lighthouse was the first lighthouse to be built in Townsville back in 1879. The isolation and beauty of this part of North Queensland is just as striking as it was in the early years.
This informative tour of Townsville’s History commences with a journey across Cleveland Bay taking in spectacular views along the way (approx. 40 minutes).
On arrival to Cape Cleveland you will be taken ashore by barge, from where you can take the walk up to the lighthouse and enjoy historical displays with regional lighthouse guides.
Spend your time taking in the natural beauty that Cape Cleveland has to offer. After an afternoon of exploration, enjoy drinks and nibbles as we watch the sunset over Townsville and Magnetic Island on our return journey.
PLEASE NOTE: This tour requires a moderate level of physical activity. It is a 20 minute walk from the beach to the summit of the lighthouse including a steep incline. Should you require assistance please advise staff on the vessel. Passengers travelling from Magnetic Island will receive a free return transfer, available for collection from the Nelly Bay office, to make their way to Townsville prior to the tour (1.35pm service at the latest).
