Magnetic Island


Discover the geology, history and wildlife of Magnetic Island, so called because it apparently had a “magnetic” effect on Captain Cook’s ship compass when he sailed past in 1770. Travel 20 minutes by fast cat across the clear blue waters of Cleveland Bay to Magnetic Island. More than half of the island is reserved as a National Park, and this has preserved stunning scenery and habitats for koalas, possums and rock wallabies, in addition to a variety of birds. Where the headlands meet the sea, secluded beaches have formed, many of which can only be reached on foot or by boat. See Magnetic Island’s highlights on a guided bus tour of the island. Encounter native wildlife on a guided ranger tour of Bungalow Bay Koala Village, where you can hold a koala or baby crocodile for a souvenir photograph (additional charges applies). You then take afternoon tea in the alfresco dining area, before returning to the Nelly Bay Terminal for transfer back to Townsville.
