Hilton expands in North Queensland with Hilton Garden Inn Townsville


Hilton is expanding its presence in North Queensland with the signing of Hilton Garden Inn Townsville.

Slated to open in in 2026 alongside the Queensland Country Bank Stadium, the 190-room hotel will feature a restaurant and bar, meeting rooms, gym and swimming pool.

Townsville is home to many government services, predominantly in the health and education sectors, and is also one of Australia’s largest military bases.

“The hotel will be modular constructed, which is a great way to reduce construction time and lower building costs,” said Tushar Raniga, Hilton’s director, development in Australasia.

The Hilton Garden Inn brand is experiencing swift expansion throughout Australasia, with three operational hotels and an additional six in the pipeline that will triple its presence over the next five years.
