Magnetic Island, Townsville Area
Live music and evening entertainment is plentiful on Magnetic Island with terrific local talent ranging from rock to reggae.
Base Magnetic Island hosts the 'Full Moon Down Under' once a month! Headlined by Australian and international acts the party brings a mix of locals and visitors to dance the night away.
Also 8.00 p.m. every Wednesday night the world famous Bufonidaes (cane toads) races are held at the Island Tavern. The event is hosted by 'Vern the Toad Master' and although it may seem a little daunting and may not be for the faint hearted, it is great family fun and definitely a night to remember.
The idea of toad racing is simple. All the toads are placed in a plastic container in the centre of a circle, and then the container is removed: the first toad to go outside the circle is the winner - a great laugh.
