      Our event is dog-friendly so four legged friends are welcome to join us, provided they are on a leash.

      The walking route is wheelchair and pram accessible.

      Melanoma Patients Australia will be in attendance with resources and information on services provided throughout Australia.

    • The walk will be from Rockpool to Tobruk Memorial Baths and back.

    • Parking is available on Howitt Street and The Strand promenade.

    • Melanoma March Townsville will be in line with current COVID restrictions. This continues to be a highly dynamic situation and we will continue to adapt and adjust as appropriate. Further details about what to expect and measures that will be in place will be added here closer to the event.

      Even though there may be some slight changes, Melanoma March Townsville is still the same important cause and a chance for us to come together safely.
