Townsville, a city on the Queensland coast, features access to the Great Barrier Reef and beautiful beaches. Several aboriginal peoples used to inhabit the land that is now Townsville, including Wulgurukaba, Bindal, Nawagi and Warakamai. Captain Phillip Parker King and botanist Alan Cunningham rediscovered the land in 1819. James Morrill was on a shipwreck near the area in 1846 and lived with Bindals for 17 years before returning to English society. Townsville was founded in 1864 as a port to serve the grazing and mining industries in North Queensland.
Fishing has been an important part of the history and culture of Townsville, Queensland, Australia. The city is located near the Great Barrier Reef, one of the world's richest marine environments, and has long been a popular destination for recreational and commercial fishing. In the 19th century, local fisherman caught and processed seafood for the growing population, and the industry continued to grow in the 20th century with the development of modern fishing techniques and the expansion of the city's port facilities. Today, fishing remains an important part of the local economy, with a thriving commercial and sport fishing industry that supports both local families and visitors to the area.
While inshore Townsville fishing, you could catch Barramundi, Bream, Dusky Flathead, Fourfinger Threadfin (Bluenose Salmon), Mangrove Red Snapper, and Whiting.
