A bit of History

The building at 719 Flinders St, Townsville City, is one of the city’s landmark properties, having been built in 1894 as the Lion Brewery, and is listed on the State’s heritage register. Over the years it uses have included as a warehouse, as a showroom for Eagers Holden and more recently as a nightclub and function centre. Today it has transformed to Townsville’s unique Health Hub featuring health related businesses such as Strand Fitness, The Fitness Institute, Townsville Yoga Hub, Body Beyond Belief Supplements, Strand Swim School, Health Cafe and Sauna and Steam Room facilities.

FUNCTION centre The Venue is set to become the Townsville Health Hub under the grand plans of Strand Fitness director Dean Bodle who has bought the property.

Mr Bodle has traded Strand Fitness from leased premises at the Stanton Centre in North Ward and said that initially he had not thought it would be suitable for his purposes.

However he warmed to the idea after seeing the potential to co-locate health businesses into the property and seeing the condition of the building where millions of dollars has been invested for multiple uses over the past 20 years.

“When I looked around the building I saw what a good condition it was in and could see how much has been spent on it,” Mr Bodle said.

“I could see the potential for what it could become.”

Mr Bodle said he understood more than $5 million had been invested in the property in the mid-1990s when it was converted to a nightclub and more in the years following for similar uses as a live music venue.
