Hilton Garden Inn Townsville to open in 2026

Hilton has announced it will manage the new-build Hilton Garden Inn Townsville, which will open in Far North Queensland in early 2026.

Under a management agreement with HHNQ Pty Ltd, Hilton will manage the 190-room hotel, adding to its portfolio of 91 hotels across Asia Pacific.

The new hotel will feature a restaurant and bar, meeting rooms, a gym and swimming pool.

“It brings us great joy to collaborate with HHNQ and introduce Hilton Garden Inn to the thriving city of Townsville,” says Tushar Raniga, director, development, Australasia, Hilton.

“The hotel will be modular constructed, which is a great way to reduce construction time and lower building costs.”

On the doorstep of the Great Barrier Reef and tropical rainforests, Townsville is home to many government services, predominantly in health and education sectors, and has one of Australia’s largest military bases.

Hilton Garden Inn Townsville will be centrally located, alongside the 25,000-seat Queensland Country Bank Stadium.

“We are excited to work with Hilton to deliver the first Hilton-branded hotel in Townsville,” says HHNQ director Michael Graham.

“The city has undergone significant growth since 2020 and is steadily becoming an economic powerhouse, supported by a favourable tropical climate and renewed interest in regional tourism.

“We know Hilton Garden Inn will be a major asset for the city – one where locals and visitors can expect reliable, friendly stays and top-tier hospitality.”
