Magnetic Island

It might only be a 20-minute ferry ride from Townsville, but once you set foot on Magnetic Island you’ll soon be running on island time. 

How to get to Magnetic Island

From Townsville, jump on the Sealink passenger service for a 25 minute trip to the Island. For those arriving by car, Fantasea Cruising Magnetic is a 45 minute service which runs daily. 

Things to do in Magnetic Island

Work your camera and your legs on the Forts Walk, keeping an eye out for koalas, WWII military base ruins and views of the island’s 23 bays and beaches. Set out on a self-guided snorkelling tour of Geoffrey Bay then hand-feed rock wallabies once back on shore. Venture off the beaten path to some (almost) secret national park beaches including Arthur, Radical and Florence Bay. Prefer a different mode of transport? Feel the wind in your hair behind the wheel of a classic moke or topless car, or set sail on a tall ship. Saddle up for horse riding through Maggie’s best beach and bush real estate, or, get your heart racing at Horseshoe Bay with jet-skiing and sea kayaking.
