Magnetic Island

Escape to a tropical island paradise surrounded by secluded bays, golden beaches and activities to excite everyone. With 23 beaches and bays and just a 20 minute ferry ride from Townsville, Magnetic Island has the natural beauty and serenity of an untouched paradise within a thriving community.

The rocky granite headlands fuse with sheltered bays and beaches, studded with majestic hoop pines, which create a dramatic and spectacular coastline. Over two-thirds of the Island is classified as National Park, providing a haven for native wildlife including rock wallabies, koalas, possums and more than 100 different bird species.

The Island has a range of accommodation including hotels and resorts, self-contained apartments, bed and breakfasts, holiday house rentals and backpacker hostels.

Getting to Magnetic Island is easy with a passenger ferry and car barge available. Once you have docked, it is straight into island life.

For those who love outdoor adventures explore the wilderness by riding or walking along the networks of tracks available.

There are plenty of outdoor activities to keep you busy including boat trips, parasailing, snorkelling tours, bus tours, water sports, golf, diving expeditions, jet skiing, great fishing and horse riding.
