Stunning Magnetic Island and Townsville

You’re not only choosing to add a new remarkable level of diving experience but you’ve chosen to do it in the epitome of paradise!

Townsville and Magnetic Island are exceptional examples of diverse and stunning charm.

The city of Townsville boasts a cosmopolitan ambience with its many eateries and nightlife hotspots, yet with country friendliness in the bargain.

Magnetic Island captures the essence of tropical, laid-back living, and is easy to get around by foot or regular bus routes.

And if deciding to stay on Magnetic Island as an option, don’t forget to check out the Koala Village at Bungalow Bay; the only resort in Australia with a wildlife park attached to it!
