After a quick ferry ride from Townsville, Magnetic Island awaits with its serene bays and rainforest-clad hills. The island is just eight square kilometers in size but packs in plenty of activities, making it the perfect day trip destination.
Magnetic Island is one of Australia’s lesser-known gems, owing to its 23 lovely sandy beaches, coral reefs, and a large number of koalas. Magnetic Island is located within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and a 20-minute ferry ride from Townsville.
I will show you to get to the island, how to get around, where to spot koala’s and which walks and beaches to check out.
