Welcome to Townsville Central State School

Townsville Central State School is comprised of a dedicated and experienced staff, thoughtful and positive students and active and involved parents. The school maintains a very strong and positive community feel to it, which is valued greatly.
Townsville Central is now over 145 years old, is the oldest school in Townsville and is located on the site of the original Townsville Gaol, giving us a strong sense of history. Situated in North Ward and within walking distance of the Strand, Queens Gardens, Castle Hill, Townsville Sports Reserve and the CBD - we believe this gives us the best location for a school in Townsville.

Use the News link at the top of the page or the Newsletter Archive link below for information on past news and events.

Here at Townsville Central, we want every child to do their best, far surpassing what we perceive as their potential.
