Magnetic Island Things to Do: 26 reviews and 25 photos


Picnic Bay is located at the opposite end of the island just south of Nelly Bay Wharf. Its a gorgeous bay offering safe patrolled swimming spots with stinger nets. There is a lovely walk- through street mall which offers some excellent cafes and shops.

Picnic Bay also has a nine hole golf course which has fantastic views. The Picnic to West Point Walk starts from the end of Picnic Street along a dirt road. The walk return takes approx 5hrs, so be prepared before you start to wander off, water, sunscreen and hat are a MUST have for this long but easy walk.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
