Situated in North Queensland’s renowned Great Barrier Reef region and only 8km from Townsville, Magnetic Island is the ideal place where you can relax, unwind and immerse yourselves in the romance of a genuine natural paradise.
This tropical island hosts an abundance of native wildlife and an assortment of bush trails beyond compare. It has numerous secluded beaches and bays that are framed by awe-inspiring rocky headlands with huge granite boulders, softened by magnificent emerald green hoop pines.
Two thirds of Magnetic Island is National Park with secluded but easily accessible bays and golden beaches.
You can explore The Magnetic Island’s most picturesque spots and enjoy spectacular views with 25 kilometers of walking tracks meandering through the protected national parks which are home to stands of eucalypts,
free-roaming koalas, rock-wallabies, curlews and Bluewing Kookaburras just a few of the 166 different species of wildlife to be found.
Swim or snorkel in secluded sandy bays and explore diverse reef and fish life. Coral reefs and shipwrecks provide spectacular diving sites, some just metres offshore.
