Townsville Entertainment and Convention Centre

Located on Townsville's Waterfront, the Townsville Entertainment and Convention Centre was constructed in 1993 to meet the growing demand for a convention venue in the tropics. The venue is jointly owned by the Townsville City Council, Thuringowa City Council and Breakwater Island Trust and has been managed by Breakwater Island Trust since its opening in February 1993. Such has been the success of the Centre, in 1997 its capacity was increased by 1,100 seats and all function areas refurbished to what is now a facility of truly international standard.

The Centre was previously the home court of former NBL team Townsville Crocodiles. The venue also hosted basketball matches during the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games and has previously even hosted a Davis Cup tennis tie. The Centre's interior, whilst stylish, maintains a warm tropical character.
