About TropiQ

Townsville Tropical Intelligence & Health Precinct

In a world of urgent climate changes, increasing population needs and untapped scientific potential, it is indefensible to limit thinking and inspiration. It is critical that new paths be connected, created and shared.

Welcome to Townsville’s Tropical Intelligence and Health Precinct, a community dedicated to helping the world access, understand and benefit from breakthroughs and solutions in health and tropical science.

Located in Australia’s largest tropical city, surrounded by some of the world’s most spectacular natural assets and biodiversity, this global destination lives and breathes with real-world research and application.


A true living laboratory


A true living laboratory and collaborative ecosystem of over 70 organisations, strongly linked to the CBD and anchored by James Cook University, The Townsville Hospital, Lavarack Barracks, ARC Centre of Excellence and the CSIRO.

To be here is to be surrounded by world-class facilities, vibrant lifestyle and inspiring urban design. For businesses, students, employees, patients and the community, TropiQ is alive with tropical intelligence.
