Will you come?

PLEASE NOTE: Due to a building collapse next door to the Old Magistrates Court, we have had to change the venue to The Arcadia Surf Life Saving Club, The Rock Pool at The Strand.


Increasing extreme heat is one of the most urgent impacts of global warming. HeatWatch is a groundbreaking Australia Institute initiative which provides analysis of extreme heat projections at specific locations across Australia.

This launch will provide a preview of newly released research of HeatWatch projections and analysis for Townsville.

Previous locations have included Darwin, Rockhampton, Gladstone, Western Sydney and Roma, all of which have drawn a great deal of media and community attention.

HeatWatch presents compelling research that can be of use to the local community to highlight the direct impacts of global warming on their communities to help build support for ambitious climate action.

This event is FREE, but bookings essential.
