Three of us hired a car for the day to travel around Magnetic Island. Very affordable and they met us at the port to pick us up and then dropped us off again! Definitely the way to do Magnetic Island - easily able to drive...More
Great little place to stay, very clean and tidy. Even though it was predominantly backpackers, it was quiet.
Staff were extremely friendly and helpful
Across the road from the ocean and walking distance to some shops
Thank John P

Thanks for you review John, it was great to meet you both and we look forward to seeing you again.
Hired a car for 24hours to get around magnetic island. For $120 for the day, we expected the cars to at least be in a decent condition. We wasn’t expecting a brand new spotless car but what we were presented with was disgusting ( see...More
We paid $115 to have one of their cars from 9am to 6pm. When we saw the car it was so old and broken - felt like it was almost about to fall apart. We drove it for 10 mins down the road and when...More

There is plenty of snorkeling very near to us including both an established snorkel trail at Geoffrey Bay and an excellent beach snorkeling spot at Alma Bay. Both of these are within easy walking distance from us (5-10 mins). The other great spot we recommend - Florence Bay is about a 20 minute 4 wheel drive away.
Access to the island is also very easy. There are 2 regular ferry services from Townsville to Magnetic Island - Sealink is a fast foot passenger service and Fantasea a slower car ferry. They both run regularly (every hour or so) between 5:30am and 11pm.
Hopefully that information helps, but please get in touch again if you have any further questions.
