Sail away & explore 23 beautiful beaches

Magnetic is a stunning island located eight kilometres off Townsville and the coast of Queensland. Approximately 70% of the island is World Heritage Listed. With over 24 kilometres of walking trails, it is a walker’s paradise. There are plenty of World War artefacts to explore and over 20 shipwrecks to discover.

Hop aboard and sail the majestic seas surrounding Magnetic Island. An 18-metre yacht which is family owned and operated. Lisa, Stu and their son Fletcher call this North Queensland built vessel their home. With an abundance of knowledge from the family, you are sure to learn many insightful things about this region along the way.

Spend a day adoring 23 beaches, colourful coral reef and endless blue waters. Go snorkelling, kayaking and try your luck at stand-up paddleboarding. You will discover islands off the coast, such as Rattlesnake Island and get barefoot on Five Bay Beach. Or if you prefer, relax and watch the blue sky pass you by.

While you are cruising, have a cup of coffee or a cuppa tea with some scones and fresh fruit. And for lunch savour a barbecue lunch. A taste sensation including fresh fish, chicken and beef skewers, a garden salad, coleslaw and an Aussie style potato salad.
