Townsville Kids online Community + Family related businesses and services = Health * Fun * Happiness * Family

Townsville Kids was started by two Townsville Mums (Sally and Renee) in 2011.  They shared a dream to help parents and caregivers find local kids information with ease and to help get all Townsville Kids out and about. This vision is shared by the current owner, Angela Anderson who took over ownership in December 2013.


Townsville Kids is a business that promotes child friendly venues, activities, services, retail, sports, schools, child care and more for ages 0-17. It is a free service for Families looking for information. Businesses and Services wishing to promote what they have to offer can contact Townsville Kids for more information, we have a selection of packages and inclusions suited to any budget to choose from. Not for Profit organisations are promoted at no charge, our little bit to support the community.


Townsville Kids goal is to connect parents and carers with child friendly businesses/services or products and provide them with the information they need to make the right choices for their families by using a multi-platform approach.

Townsville is a wonderful city with so much to offer and Townsville Kids wants to promote this to local and visiting families. Townsville Kids is also an opportunity for our many transient Defence and Mining families to research information prior to their arrival in Townsville and help them prepare for their transition to life in our great city.

About the Owner & Chief Fun Finder, Angela Anderson

Many times I have self-doubted my parenting techniques, at times I have been desperate for active things to do with my toddler son to ensure he had his afternoon nap (and I could get stuff done!).  I have sought different activities to find the right one for my son as he was (is) very active and loud and needed an outlet.


I have wanted to find information that could help me.


When I became the Chief Fun Finder at Townsville Kids late 2013 I set myself a challenge; to master where, who and how to find the best information and refine how to bring it easily to the Townsville Community, via our website, mailing list and social media platforms, to help families every day.


In a past life I have enjoyed a diverse career, working in the Australian Defence Force, Recruitment Industry, Retail Sector, Real Estate and the Australian Public Service.


I have weighed fruit and vegetables, processed payroll, opened houses on the smallest, cockroach infested shoe box in Sydney, interviewed a whole manufacturing workforce looking for work after a company closure and successfully coordinated the movement of hundreds of French troops on and off a Navy ship during a 3 day exercise, without speaking the language.  All of this has set me up for the hardest and most rewarding job of all – Mum!


My family moved to Townsville in 2012 to both my husband and my families delight as they all live here.  My husband deployed on arrival with the Air Force for 6 months and I still rejoice the fact I had family here for support.  I know life would have been very different if we had stayed in Sydney.  I have since fallen in love with Townsville (my husband grew up here) and we now call Townsville home.


The problem I faced when I moved here is my Family didn’t know much about what to do with a one year old as all their kids had grown up (I had my first child at 35).  Google helped me find all what I needed, Townsville has a lot to offer if you have time to find it!


I then found a solution to spending hours on Google! Townsville Kids.


Since taking the reins of Townsville Kids I have honed my skills and knowledge about running a business, working from home, marketing, social media and all the local businesses and services in Townsville.  I have grown the Townsville Kids Community from a Facebook following of 1800 to over 7000 and created a mailing list that has supported surveys for Stockland and Lend Lease to assist planning of future playgrounds while being able to offer large incentive prizes.


The Townsville Kids community is here to help families and carers keep kids entertained, active, healthy, educated, accessorised, partied and happy while they themselves keep up with fast paced society.  For weekly updates on what is happening around this wonderful town of ours click the Community link below.

What our clients are saying

As a local Townsville business I have found Townsville Kids to be so supportive. Not only are they excellent in keeping me informed of what is happening in my region but from the marketing and advertising perspecitive their service is excellent. They are very responsive to my business’ needs and proactive in informing the community about my business. The feedback and regular contact that is made is outstanding. I couldn’t recommend highly enough the service of Townsville Kids. They truly understand and are ahead of what is happening to keep us all informed. I have gained leads from this particular site as they really direct people to TMT Deportment & Etiquette Academy. Trisha Mary Telford – Director TMT Deportment & Etiquette Academy

Angela is so easy to work with; she is flexible and accommodating to my advertising needs.  The majority of my customers come from exposure on Townsville Kids.  I’ve tried ads on Facebook, but nothing has generated more business than Townsville Kids.  Debbie Duckworth
