Douglas is a suburb of Townsville, Queensland, Australia south of the Ross River and west of the city centre.

Though mainly residential, it does contain James Cook University and the Townsville Hospital. The suburb is also known due to the Douglas Arterial Road which is a thoroughfare single-carriageway motorway through the suburb, also the first stage of the Townsville Ring Road.

The suburb is in the middle of a residential boom, with student accommodation expansion projects at James Cook University and also the establishment of two Housing estates in close proximity.
