Academic Editing Services in Townsville


Located on the north-eastern coast of Australia, Townsville is the administrative hub for the Far North Queensland (FNQ) region and hosts numerous government offices. The city of 180,000 is popular with tourists due to its proximity to Magnetic Island and the Great Barrier Reef. The city has refining plants and some light industry, in addition to a large military presence. Its climate is warm and humid year-round, with thunderstorms and downpours sometimes common during the Wet season (November–April), although this varies year to year. Townsville offers a unique opportunity for students to experience life in tropical FNQ. With the Great Barrier Reef on its doorstep, this city is particularly appealing for students wanting to enjoy this World Heritage-listed treasure.
