A Message from Tourism and Sport Minister, Stirling Hinchliffe MP

After a hugely successful debut in 2020, it’s fantastic to see the Northern Australian Beach 5s Rugby Championship make a triumphant return in 2021 to The Strand.

Townsville loves its footy and the beach, which is what makes the Northern Australian Beach 5s Rugby Championship a perfect pairing in North Queensland.  Based on modified rules of League, Union and Touch, without lineouts, scrums or conversions – the Beach 5s is a fast-paced test of stamina, tactical know-how and ball handling skills.

Over two days, five-a-side teams will do battle on the beach at The Strand with matchups from under 12 juniors to women’s and men’s competitions.

The Palaszczuk Government and Tourism and Events Queensland’s Destination Events Program are proud supporters of Townsville’s 2021 Northern Australian Beach 5s Rugby Championship.

Destination events like the Northern Australian Beach 5s Rugby Championship bring new visitors to the North who spend with local tourist businesses and support local jobs.

Whether you’re on a team or a spectator on the sand, make the most of your stay in Townsville by taking time out to explore and be amazed by North Queensland.

There’s so much to see and do in Townsville and the North just one trip is never enough.
