Experience Magnetic Island

Magnetic Island's outstanding natural beauty and relaxed, tropical island lifestyle are just a short ferry ride from Townsville. 

Visitors can laze on secluded beaches, actively explore the island and its surrounds, or experience the wonders of the surrounding Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Marine Area.  Magnetic Island is located just 10 kilometres off Townsville, on the Queensland eastern coast. The car ferry departs South Townsville and 40 minutes later arrives at the breathtaking Nelly Bay.
