Pallarenda Beach and Rowes Bay are essentially one long beach cut in the middle by Three Mile Creek. Both beaches are backed by a 1 to 2 km wide, low, coastal plain. Pallarenda Beach (859) is 2.5 km long, faces east and receives low waves usually less than 0.3 m. These maintain a low, 50 m wide high tide beach fronted by 100 to 200 m wide intertidal sand flats. The northern end of the beach lies in the Environmental Park and has a number of facilities and picnic areas. Just south of the park entrance is a concrete boat ramp and a swimming enclosure, backed by the small Pallarenda residential settlement. The Cape Pallarenda Road runs right behind the beach, providing good access for the entire length, with a grassy foreshore reserve between the road and the beach.

Swimming

The best spot is at Pallarenda, with the added safety of the stinger net during summer. All beaches can only be used at mid to high tide owing to the low tide flats.

Surfing

Usually none.

Fishing

Best at high tide near the creek mouths.

General

Pallarenda and Rowes Bay are two of Townsville’s more accessible and popular beaches, offering excellent access and plenty of space.
