Transport Information

Transport during the Festival

The majority of events at the AFCM are held at the Townsville Civic Theatre. Generally Townsville does not have a dedicated public transport service to the theatre, therefore during AFCM a special bus is provided by Sunbus, with tickets purchased on board. Gold Pass holders have a separate bus service available to them. When considering your accommodation please consider the mode of transport that best suits your requirements during AFCM.

Magnetic Island Ferry Timetable

In support of AFCM, SeaLink Queensland will make a slight change to their Timetable during the Festival. They will delay three of their scheduled night service departures (Monday 3 August, Wednesday 5 August and Thursday 6 August) from Townsville to Magnetic Island by 10 minutes.  This will allow residents and guests staying on the island time to get the last Ferry service from Townsville. Thank you SeaLink! For more info on Ferry times please visit SeaLink's website.
