Take a dip with some island scuba diving
Ringed by the warm waters of the glittering Coral Sea, it's little wonder Magnetic Island is a popular destination for scuba diving. Many of the island's hotels and guesthouses are located close to the shoreline, ensuring easy access to some of Far North Queensland's most popular dive sites.
Wrecked in shallow water in 1911, German vessel 'The Moltke' is these days one of Magnetic Island's most popular dive sites. Step back on dry land and into the comfortable surrounds of a self-catered apartment, where you can relax and enjoy some stunning Queensland sunsets from the balcony.
Bed, breakfast and bushwalks
Bushwalks are one of the most popular things to do on Magnetic Island, owing to the fact that much of the island is covered by dense bushland. One of the most popular perambulations is the historic Forts Walk, which takes visitors on a meandering journey to many of the defensive sites which guarded over the island during World War II.
Bed and breakfasts are a popular accommodation choice for visitors to the islands, with numerous family-run guesthouses dotted along the picturesque island shores.
