Magnetic Island Travel Guide: 79 reviews and 120 photos


From Townsville you can also visit Magnetic Island, 4km offshore. Regular ferries make the trip in about 25 minutes. The island has a bus service which doubles as an island tour. We visited several beautiful beaches including Arthur's bay where you can also snorkel on the coral reef.

Rock Wallabies

Most of the island is a National Park and there are some nice walks where we saw wild koalas. We also visited a place where you can hand feed rock wallabies (some with joeys in their pouches) and possums.
