Magnetic Island - Barrier Reef Island Paradise

Magnetic Island sits just off the eastern seaboard of Australia from Townsville and is in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Marine Area.  Magnetic Island is easily accessed from Townsville by ferry, and the ferry can take your car as well! Magnetic Island covers 52 kilometres and has a very mountainous and beautiful interior.

Magnetic Island has a wide range of tourist accommodation ranging from basic backpacker facilities, through self-catering units to plush beachside resorts.  Transport around Magnetic Island is easy as there is a reliable bus service that stops at all the key places on the island.

Magnetic Island has some magnificent beaches for you to laze you days away in the tropical sun, or if you are feeling more energetic there are miles of well-marked walking tracks that cris-cross the island.

Snorkelling, diving and fishing are also big attractions on Magnetic island, as is trying to spot one of Magnetic Island's famous koalas.  For a more certain view, visit Bungalow Bay Koala Village and have a champagne bush tucker breakfast with the koalas.
