Description Cape Pallarenda Conservation Park is at the end of Cape Pallarenda Road, 10 km north of the Townsville city centre. The park is accessible by conventional vehicle. The gates are open from 6.30 am to 6.30 pm daily. The park features the historic Quarantine Station—established in 1915, to quarantine passengers on incoming ships. During World War II the American and Australian armies used this area. Camps were set up on nearby beaches and the Quarantine Station was used as a hospital. Visitors can discover more about the station's history at the historic display. The Cape Pallarenda trails are a network of shared walking and mountain biking trails in the Cape Pallarenda and Townsville Town Common conservation parks. The trails range from short easy walks to challenging hikes and cross country mountain bike rides. Consider your fitness level before undertaking the extended trails. The park is home to many types of birds, wallabies and lizards that are easily spotted in the open woodland environment.
