The SpaceThe house is only four years old, so all is literally new. You'll enjoy your room and literally the whole floor, with a kitchenette, toilet, bathroom and a great deck surrounded by a beautiful garden.
Guests are welcome to cook their own meals in the kitchenette.
In general, we enjoy meeting new people, but we'll let our guests decide what and when. It all depends on the situation.
Riverside Ridge is a relatively new neighbourhood. The neighbourhood borders with JCU university and is a couple of kilometres from major other amenities and shopping centres (Stockland, Meyer, Coles, and Target). There are two Woollies, one just across the bridge, less then 1 km away and another one at JCU university, about 1,5 km away.
Main Road Access
Guests and travellers can access the neighbourhood directly from the ring road, so you're only a few minutes drive to nearly everywhere. A drive to the CBD will take 15 minutes on the ring road. A drive from the airport will take 10 to 15 minutes. A taxi from the airport cost on average 30 dollars.
Guests are welcome to use our bicycles (one for ladies and another for men) during their stay. Helmets and locks are also included.
We enjoy sharing our garden with guests. Guests are welcome to get fresh herbs like parsley, basil and rosemary from the garden.
We planted many natives in the garden to attract wildlife and the results are stunning. Being close to the outdoors, you’ll be viewing large flocks of cockatoos in the morning, and gigantic colonies of fruit bats flying westward to their feeding grounds. At the same time, you shouldn't be surprised to encounter kangaroos and wallabies roaming the neighborhood early morning and at dusk.
Recycling is a way of life for us. We recycle absolutely everything. All food leftovers are recycled for compost using Bokashi fermentation and worm farm methods, which in turn fertilize our garden. We supply guests with a special collection container and they too participate in the process.
Tonwsville Mountain Bike Trails Reserve is just minutes away from us. The reserve features 30 km of trails meandering the hills surrounding our neighborhood. It’s a joy to walk and the views are breathtaking. Guest AccessWhole floor with kitchenette, with own toilet and bathroom. Access to the deck and garden. Access to the top veranda for tea or coffee at sunset. Guests can have their breakfast on the veranda if they wish.

The neighbourhood is services once an hour (202 to Stockland and 210 to Willows Shopping Centre). The travel fee in both directions is 2.80 dollars.
Many of our guests choose to stay with us because of the relative proximity to JCU University and Townsville Hospital. We offer two bicycles (one for ladies and another for men) to commute back and forth to both amenities. It takes around 7 to 10 minutes to get to both hospital and university (downhill and easy) and around 15 minutes to get back (uphill and requires more effort, but feasible).
