Rowes Bay is located between the suburbs of North Ward and Palleranda.
Located in the
Townsville suburb of Rowes Bay
the wetlands were once part of a continuous system of wetlands, sand
dunes and coastal flats that stretched from Kissing Point to Pallarenda
and across to the Bohle River including the full extent of the Town
The wetlands are now bordered and contained by urban features including
the Belgian Gardens cemetery, Townsville airport, part of the Rowes Bay
residential area and Cape Pallarenda Road. Most of the remaining Rowes
Bay wetlands are included in a Reserve managed by Townsville City
Council through Integrated Sustainability Services.
