Lose yourself for a day, a week, or forever on Magnetic Island. You will notice that it’s like no other island getaway.

The contrasting landscape of this island makes this natural destination truly distinctive.

The rocky granite headlands fuse with the 23 bays and beaches studded with magnificent Hoop pine trees, creating a dramatic coastline.

Visible from the sea, Mount Cook hovers above the eucalypt woods and green vine forests. The island provides the perfect setting for a unique escape.
