Magnetic Island Informer


a perfect pace


As well as tranquil beaches, unspoilt nature, pristine waterways and 320 days of sunshine a year, Magnetic Island offers a relaxed lifestyle and village atmosphere to around 3000 local residents.

As the only island in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park that offers freehold title, the Magnetic Island residents enjoy all the benefits of an established community. There are shops in all of the 4 residential bays including supermarkets, newsagents, boutiques, hardware stores, bakery, chemist, photo shop, hairdressing salons, and liquor stores. Servicing the local population are medical centres, the local credit union, post office, state primary school, real estate agencies, service stations and much more.

To support the Magnetic Island population we have a number of trades related businesses from plumbing to electrical, building to carpentry, painting to excavation.

Locals and visitors alike can also enjoy a range of courses, groups, classes and events including dance, yoga, art, jazz, and a variety of sports – for participants of ALL ages.
