Townsville is a beautiful place to live but there is a serious side to the North Queensland summer with potential risks for natural disasters such as cyclones, bushfires and flooding. Council is committed to educating residents about these natural dangers.
Townsville City Council owns and operates two premier regional galleries: Perc Tucker Regional Gallery in the city's central business district (CBD), and Pinnacles Gallery located within the Riverway Arts Centre in Thuringowa Central.
Townsville is home to two premier theatres; the Townsville Civic Theatre and the Riverway Arts Centre. Both venues offer a range of entertainment and special events and provide an environment to further develop performing arts in Townsville and the North.
