About Magnetic Island



World Heritage Magnetic Island is located 8 kilometres off Townsville, midway between Cairns and Airlie Beach on the Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia. "Down Under" for our Northern friends.

Fly DIRECT to Townsville from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane for great Eco Tours with Tropicana.

Or if you are in Cairns the best way is to drive the Great Green Way and be sure to stop at Paronella Park.

If travelling from the south be sure to stop at Billabong Sanctuary.

Magnetic is the is the only Island off the North Queensland Coast with a genuine village atmosphere (because of the resident population), 23 beautiful secluded beaches, LIVE coral reef close to shore, enormous wildlife diversity and a large proportion of untouched National Park.

Although located in the Tropics, the whole Townsville/Magnetic Island area is in the DRY Tropics in a rain shadow which makes it the sunniest Island on the Queensland coast (Magnetic Island averages over 320 days of sunshine per year).

Just twenty minutes by fast "Cat" across Cleveland Bay from Townsville and you could be in what many consider Paradise! 

More than half of the Island's 5,184 hectares (12,000 acres) is National Park, with Mt. Cook in the centre rising to 497 metres. Huge granite boulders are softened by tall Hoop pines, eucalypt forest and small patches of rainforest.

There are 24 kilometres of walking track with many spectacular lookouts. The National Park is a haven for wildlife, like rock wallabies, possums, koalas and a wide variety of bird-life.

Warm waters, clear blue skies and pristine beaches create a tranquil scene that soothes all who visit.

If you're looking for the experience of a lifetime, make the journey to Magnetic Island. You will not regret it.
