Amanda Bell, Founder
Welcome to Family Friendly Townsville!
My name is Amanda, I live in Townsville, Queensland, Australia. I’m a mad movie buff who is obsessed with panda bears. I’m also a proud born and bred Townsvillian, with a strong sense of community and in 2017 I added the title ‘proud MUM’ to my résumé. As a new mum I went on the search for all the products, services, events and activities for kids in Townsville and surrounding areas. I was met with google overwhelm, out of date or irrelevant information and i just wanted to find everything for parents in one place.
I wondered, how can I make the lives of parents, more specifically parents of 0-12 year old children, easier when seeking the most up to date information on what the region has to offer families, from the everyday to special events and everything in between.
With a background in media,a keen interest and talent for social media and connecting people both on and offline, I set about solving my own problem, with the creation of a helpful and positive online parent space.
And so, Townsville Family Life was ‘born’.
