Magnetic Island Tours

The shores of Queensland are known for their rugged beauty, untouched coastlines and breathtaking landscapes. Nowhere is Mother Nature’s splendor more evident than on Magnetic Island, a popular holiday destination across the water from Townsville. 

With 27 square kilometers of scenic walking paths, impressive mountains and even a densely populated bird sanctuary, Magnetic Island is paradise for lovers of the outdoors. A national park covers more than half the island and in addition to plenty of hiking, anglers will find some of the sea’s best fishing opportunities, too. Full moon parties, which take place with each new moon, and the Great Tropical Jazz Party every August, are two of the island’s best celebrations. 

Practical Info

The island is accessible via Nelly Harbour by ferry from Townsville.
