Bohle Plains

Bohle Plains is an outer south-western residential suburb of Townsville, 10 km from the city centre. It is west of the Bohle River and north of Hervey Range Road. Formally named in 1991, 'Bohle' was the name of a cattle drover in the Townsville region in the 1860s. Both a parish and the river were named after Henry Bohle. The river rises about 25 km from the coast and flows north into Halifax Bay.
