Heritage charm, family-friendly amenities and a spacious backyard combine to make Skull & Swallow a morning favourite for the people of South Townsville. Whether you’re grabbing a takeaway on your morning walk, or want to sit back with a barista-made espresso and a book – we’ve got you covered.

We’re proud to be ambassadors of Plastic Free Townsville, and have set ourselves the goal of becoming 100% plastic-free. Crucial to this is our ‘mug library’. Grab one instead of a plastic cup, or bring down some of your old mugs to give them a new life.
