Magnetic Island is about a 30 min ferry ride from Townsville, Queensland. It is a tropical paradise and one of my all time favourite places that I have ever travelled to. The people are laid back and friendly, there are miles of forests filled with all sorts of wild life and the beaches are amazing.
We stayed at the Bungalow Bay Koala Sanctuary in a little cabin. There is also the option of dorm living as well as camping spots. Clean bathrooms and showers were also provided as well as a community kitchen. We were provided with everything we would need for snorkelling, hiking or any other activity you might want to do.
Each day after we spent a few hours touring around the Island exploring or relaxing on the beach we would make our way down for dinner at one of the beach side cafes and wait for the sunset. Every night we were greeted by the most amazing colours falling across the horizon. Pops of red, orange and yellow slowly fading into a dusty pink. I must have taken a million pictures, I just couldn’t get enough.
