The Townsville (Pimlico) campus is currently undergoing a $35 million redevelopment. To enhance the learning experience of our students, a state-of-the-art training kitchen, restaurant and simulated nursing wards, as well as hairdressing and beauty salons will feature in the new-look facility. This is expected to open in January 2020.

The campus is located off Hugh Street in Pimlico, and is conveniently positioned just 10 minutes' drive from the Townsville CBD. Known as the unofficial capital of north Queensland, Townsville offers a laid-back tropical lifestyle with all the facilities of a major city. The city's attractions include the Strand — the city's seaside promenade lined with restaurants, cafes and bars — and the nearby Great Barrier Reef and Magnetic Island.
