Top Tips

Book a return ticket on the Magnetic Island ferries to travel in style and comfort on a modern, high-speed catamaran from Townsville with 18 services a day. A short and scenic 20-minute ferry ride is all it takes to reach this wonderful destination that is truly magnetic. There are a host of things to do on Magnetic Island, an island situated in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef.

Discover this beautiful corner of the world with a snorkel, jet ski, fish or unearth the military history on the Forts Walk where a colony of wild koalas can often be found snoozing in the Eucalyptus trees. If your objective is to do nothing at all, that’s ok too. Simply kick back and relax on the beautiful golden sands at any of the palm-fringed beaches while soaking up the tropical Queensland sun.

The Magnetic Island ferry travels to and from the island all day long so you’ll be able to book your ticket online then head out from the Breakwater Ferry Terminal in Townsville at a flexible time that best fits your schedule. See what all the fuss is about by booking your trip on the Magnetic Island ferry today and get a dose of fun in the sun amongst a spectacular reef environment that you can enjoy however you see fit.
