Annandale, a residential suburb, is 6 km south-west of central Townsville and on the south bank of the Ross River. It is a dormitory suburb for James Cook University, and the Lavarack Barracks which it adjoins. Annandale is also well positioned for access to central Townville with river-bridge crossings at its eastern and western extremities. The name was first used for a residential estate in 1974, and it is thought that the name had applied to Annandale Paddocks in the late nineteenth century.
