Magnetic Island Informer


so much more...


Magnetic Island offers you the best of both worlds. A stunning natural landscape of tranquil beaches and dramatic terrain, combined with all the conveniences of modern life.

The local community consists of up to 3000 permanent residents, enjoying a unique island lifestyle minus the usual sacrifices. As the only island in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park that offers freehold title, Magnetic Island residents enjoy all the benefits of an established community.

Visitors will appreciate the diverse range of services available which provide convenient options for self-catering, a fine choice of fashions to add to your summer wardrobe, through to booking a relaxing massage by a skilled professional - all at local rather than resort prices. Make the most of your stay by exploring every inch of the Island’s landscape by hiring a fun island car or scooter, and if island life really appeals to you, there are promising investment opportunities available and real estate agents on hand to guide you on your way. The benefits of this unique destination are truly astounding and no one is excluded, from the serious holiday maker to the entrepreneur, we can accommodate you.
