Itinerary

Magnetic Island Snorkel - Sailing Great Barrier Reef

A lunchtime Great Barrier Reef tour is a great way to explore the beauty of Magnetic Island and having a hands-on sailing adventure. 

Magnetic Island (or Maggie Island – as the locals call it) sits a short 8 km from Townsville in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.

It is a lush island surrounded by the brilliant blue waters of the Coral Sea.

The traditional owners, the Wulgurukab Aboriginal people have inhabited this Great Barrier Reef island for thousands of years and call Magnetic Island ‘Yunbenun’. 

Over half of its mountainous 52 sq km is National Park.  With 23 stunning and secluded bays to choose from you can sunbathe under tropical sunshine in stunning pristine locations.

Golden-sanded bays fringed with giant granite boulders, eucalyptus and hoop pines give a rugged beauty.
