History

Magnetic Island has been a popular holiday destination for many years, loved by international guests and Aussie tourists alike. Before this, the island was home to European settlers, and , various Aboriginal groups lived on the island even earlier.

With a large koala population, it is also one of the best places in the whole of Australia for watching these furry cute critters in the wild. Relax on the sandy beaches and swim in the deliciously cool ocean. The waters are also teeming with fish, so it’s great for keen fishing enthusiasts.
