Magnetic Island

  Magnetic Island It’s a great place to go snorkelling, go for short hikes to secluded beaches and see some Australian wildlife. A lot of places offer accommodation to suit a whole range of budgets from backpackers over to those who prefer a bit more luxury. A place I personally loved staying at is the Bungalow Bay Koala Village which offers little wooden huts in the midst of nature and also has a koala sanctuary incorporated into the resort.

Magnetic Island

Jezzine Barracks is also a new revamp done to Townsville, originally known as Kissing Point but now it has been restored and shows the history of the Forts and Military from both World War as well as accommodating a day out for the family. It now has BBQ areas, Playgrounds, Garden walks, Boardwalks and much more. Magnetic Island
