One of the best things you can do to increase your feeling of peace and harmony is to take a break. Thats right. Go on holidays. If you arent taking at least one good long break every year it could be impacting severely on your health and happiness.
Recently the Nibbana team took a trip to Townsville. Most of us had never been there before so it was all very exciting. Townsville is a lovely city with many things to do and many ways to connect with nature and animals.
Townsville, North Queensland is a bustling and vibrant destination boasting diversity in landscape. Whether you prefer scuba diving wrecks on the Great Barrier Reef, snorkeling the reefs around Magnetic Island or just relaxing by a pool, you can do that here.
Most excitingly, if you want to see Koala’s, Kangaroo’s and Crocodiles you will not be disappointed with the many tours that are available.
For ultimate relaxation we recommend a trip to Magnetic Island.
Magnetic Island is only 25 minutes ferry ride from Townsville, approximately half way between Cairns and the Whitsundays/Airlie Beach, within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage listed area – and it’s where you’ll find a host of hidden treasures or adventure.
Nearly 70% of Magnetic Island (approx. 5184 hectares) is National Park. Take a long walk on one of the guided trails and connect with nature. Bliss.
Or if your idea of a good time is getting up close and personal with the locals. (Koala, Kangaroo or a Crocodile) You can go to the Billabong Sanctuary at the Australian Native Animal Wildlife Park.
There you will meet Koalas, Crocodiles, Wombats, Dingoes, Kangaroos, Pythons and birds like Cassowaries
Meet and greet your favourite Australian animals here in a tropical bushland setting on the shores of the billabong.
With reef, rainforest, outback and wetlands all within an hour or two of Townsville, North Queensland, it’s hard to go past this region for while you are on holiday in Townsville.
Now be sure not to overdo it. Taking a holiday shouldn’t turn into a stressful activity. There is no need to be a part of every single activity a place has to offer. Just pick a couple and be sure to schedule in plenty of ‘doing nothing’ days and make sure someone else is doing all of the cooking!
