Making Business Connections

Be Connected

A Chamber of Commerce is a network of local businesses and industries. There are Chambers of Commerce all over the world, and while we are all different and separate from one another, we all share the same goal - to improve the local business environment.

Be Informed

We inform our members so they can improve their business. We advocate for jobs, projects and connectivity to improve the local business environment.

Be Heard

We provide members with opportunities to network and promote themselves.

The Townsville Chamber has been ‘making business connections’ for over 135 years.
