Three things to do

Paradise - - Townsville -

1 Mag­netic Is­land is home to north­ern Aus­tralia’s largest koala colony. See them on the four-kilo­me­tre Forts Walk, which vis­its a com­pound of World War 2 for­ti­fi­ca­tions and has mag­nif­i­cent moun­tain-top views. 2 Rent a pink ‘Bar­bie car’ from Trop­i­cal To­p­less Car Ren­tals, buy a bag of feed from the gen­eral store in Ar­ca­dia, ven­ture to the end of Brem­mer Point to hand feed the tiny rock wal­la­bies. 3 There are self-guided snorkelling trails in Nelly Bay and Ge­of­frey Bay. You’ll see giant clams, coral, and a ship­wreck. Wa­ter­proof ‘swim cards’ are avail­able from is­land shops and ac­com­mo­da­tion, pro­vid­ing information on lo­ca­tions along the route.
