Rosslea is bounded to the east and south by the Ross River. The suburb is very flat (approx 5m above sea level). The eastern half of the suburb is occupied by the Townsville Golf Club. The rest of the suburb is residential. Being low-lying on a river, Rosslea can be affected by flooding, mostly in the golf club area.
The name "Rosslea" is a combination of "Ross" (representing the Ross River) and "lea", the Old English word for a grassy meadow.
