Itinerary

Magnetic Island - Great Barrier Reef - Townsville

Magnetic Island, or as the locals call it ‘Maggie’ is located only half an hour ferry ride and 8km from Townsville.

When it comes to stunning islands, this ruggedly beautiful gem located on the Great Barrier Reef in Far North Queensland is certainly worth a visit.

With rocky granite headlands, bordered by towering hoop pines that stand like sentinels over the pristine sandy bays, the mountains on Magnetic Island are covered with eucalypt koala-harbouring woodlands, all surrounded by fringing reefs, sea grass beds and mangrove communities.

Over half of Magnetic island (2,790ha) is protected and known as the Magnetic Island National Park.

The golden sandy beaches are important turtle nesting areas and the mangrove shelters fish nurseries.

The sea grass beds attract feeding turtles and dugongs, which are all great to see when you are snorkeling or swimming around the coral reef gardens.

The Wulgurukab Aboriginal people inhabited Magnetic Island for thousands of years, and called the island  ‘Yunbenun’.

In 1770 James Cook landed unexpectedly on Magnetic Island due to compass failure.

It was from that point forward that the island was aptly re-named (perhaps non-Magnetic Island might have been more fitting!).

Along with all the activities that you can partake in on Magnetic Island, a private yacht charter is the perfect way to explore the beauty of the island on your time frame and at your speed.

On your private charter boat sailing cruise you will be taken to explore some of the 23 stunning, mostly pristine, bays that Magnetic Island boasts.
