The Community Information Centre Townsville Inc (CIC) is a not-for-profit community organisation funded primarily by Townsville City Council. The Centre was established in 1976 as a volunteer organisation and has since continued to provide information to residents, a wide range of community groups, government and non-government departments. The CIC provides a comprehensive information and referral service. The service is free (except for the cost of some publications), confidential and available to any member of the community. The Community Events calendar has been incorporated into What’s On Townsville – your guide to the latest upcoming performances, events, exhibitions and more!
