Magnetic Island Tours from Townsville

Magnetic Island Tours from Townsville

Situated in the Great Barrier Reef, Magnetic Island is a must for active travelers and nature lovers, with more than half of its land designated as national park territory. The island is a breeze to access, as it’s just a short boat ride from Townsville on the mainland. Here’s what you need to know about Magnetic Island tours from Townsville.

Highlights

  • Go snorkeling, sailing, Jet Skiing, or sea kayaking in one of the island’s many bays.

  • Trek along the island’s network of walking trails, which offer views of turquoise bays, boulder-strewn shores, mangrove forests, and eucalyptus woodland. 

  • Swim and soak up the sun at pristine, secluded beaches.

  • Look out for native Australian wildlife, such as rock wallabies and koalas.

  • Join a snorkel or diving cruise around the surrounding Great Barrier Reef Marine Park for a window onto a colorful underwater world. 

  • Book a private cruise and spend the day sailing around the island’s scenic shoreline, swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing, and spending quality time with friends or family.

Things to Know

Magnetic Island is situated just 5 miles (8 kilometers) from Townsville on the Queensland mainland.

Both passenger and car ferries depart Townsville regularly for the 20- to 40-minute journey to Magnetic Island. 

Ferries leave from the Breakwater Terminal on Sir Leslie Thiess Drive and from the terminal on Ross Street in South Townsville and sail to Nelly Bay Harbour on Magnetic Island.

Purchase ferry tickets only and plan your own Magnetic Island adventure or opt for a guided boat tour with scheduled snorkeling and swimming stops.
