Magnetic Island

Magnetic Island is an island 8 kilometres offshore from the city of Townsville in Queensland, Australia. Although in the Tropics, the Townsville area is in a rain shadow which makes it the sunniest city on the Queensland coast Magnetic Island averages over 320 days of sunshine per year.

More than half of the Island's 5,184 hectares is National Park, with Mt.Cook in the centre rising to 497 metres. Huge granite boulders are softened by tall Hoop pines, eucalypt forest and small patches of rainforest. Where the rocky headlands meet the sea many secluded beaches have been formed, some may only be reached on foot or by boat.

There is a resident population of about 2,500 and a variety of holiday resorts, a range of accommodation and activities, restaurants and cafes, marina and attractions.

Passenger Ferries leave from Breakwater Terminal in Townsville, a 10 minute drive from Townsville Airport. The 'fastcat' takes just twenty minutes by passenger ferry and arrives at Nelly Bay Ferry Terminal and Marina Prescinct. Car Ferries also leave from South Townsville so you can bring your own car to explore the island.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! Suited our needs to a tee! Comfortable, relaxed and peaceful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for. The property is in a very quiet street with an array of wildlife, and a great yard for the dog. On arrival, there was no key, so we couldn't leave the house until the following morning. One aircon to cool an entire house. Uncomfortable beds, can not sit two people on the couch, small shower, and evidence of previous tenants or guests. It's ok for the price that you pay, but we'll be looking elsewhere next time we visit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from IDLE DAYS Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The property was very adequate. Good enclosed yard for my dogs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pet Friendly pre-fab house On the plus side, if you are travelling with pets, this place has fully enclosed yard with grass and good outdoor facilities (seating & bbq area) and is very pet friendly. The house itself is of basic design, cheaply furnished with very small bedrooms and soft saggy beds. The sofa is so uncomfortable, for example, you would not want to sit on it at all. However, it is just a few minutes to Horseshoe Bay with bars and cafes and all the outdoor activities. If you don't intend to spend much time indoors and are travelling with pets then you might want to consider this place but to be honest there are nicer and better value places on the island.
