Townsville undergoes expansion amid ‘huge exodus’ to regional centres

The Daily Telegraph’s National Political Reporter Clare Armstrong says it’s "really good to see" investment and expansion in Townsville amid a "huge exodus" to regional centres by city dwellers.

The Townsville Bulletin reports Businessman Chris Carney is investing in the city’s south amid predicted growth in the region.

"If you’re a place like Townsville and you want to attract some of the best and brightest minds that are fleeing the cities then you need to have the interest, facilities and the housing," Ms Armstrong told Sky News host Peter Gleeson.

"So it’s really good to see there’s something on the horizon for Townsville."
