Leafy and bordering the Ross River
Annandale borders the southern side of Ross River. It is the biggest suburb of Townsville and thus the most populated in the city. It was the biggest planned housing development in Townsville City. Construction started in the mid-1970s and was completed in early 2005. Annandale is one of Townsville's newest suburbs and is home to some of Townsville's wealthy, who live more toward the riverbank. Before the 2006 Queensland state election, Annandale was part of the Electoral district of Burdekin, but just prior to the 2006 state election, the suburb became part of the Electoral district of Mundingburra.
Annandale continues to be one of the most exciting suburbs to transact real estate in. James Cook University, Lavarack Baracks and the Townsville Hospital are all close-by and this helps to insulate the suburb from market conditions that effect the rest of the city.
