About Australia

Australia is the 6th largest country in the world, situated between the Pacific and the Indian Ocean.

Surrounding the 35,000 km mainland coast are numerous islands including the enormous Tasmania to the south and the world-renowned, beautiful Whitsundays to the northeast.

With nearly all the major settlements situated along the coast, you can find beachfront hangouts, superb seafood and trendy art scenes in all the big cities. That’s not all, though, as the vast outback awaits those looking for peace and quiet away from the bustling tourist hotspots, which is also home to the spectacular Ayers Rock, known by its aboriginal name of ‘Uluru’.

As an isolated island country fringed by islands and archipelagos, Australia offers a great number of domestic ferry routes. Depending on where you are along the coast, a short ferry ride is all it takes to reach the Great Barrier Reef, Kangaroo Island, Tasmania and many more wonderful destinations.

About Magnetic Island

Magnetic is one of Australia’s most popular islands, sitting 8 kilometres east of Townsville, Queensland.

Part of the mainland until 7,500 years ago, when the sea level rose, the island was discovered by Captain Cook in 1770 who named it after the magnetic effect it had on his compass. Today, visitors are drawn to its 23 beaches, easy access to the Great Barrier Reef and beautiful National Park, which is home to the largest colony of Koalas in northern Australia.

Despite lying in the heart of the tropics, Magnetic Island boasts 320 sunny days per year, allowing you to enjoy the scenic walking trails, the country’s best dive sites and buzzing beach parties all year round.

Given its proximity to the mainland, travelling to Magnetic Island by ferry couldn’t be easier. Numerous crossings are available every day from Townsville to Nelly Bay on Magnetic’s southeast coast.
