Magnetic Island

Magnetic Island is a town located on the south-western tip of Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia, about one and a half hours south of Adelaide. It is a short ferry ride from Townsville, approximately half way between Cairns and the Whitsundays/Airlie Beach, within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage listed area - and it's where you'll find a host of hidden treasures! The island has got a total of 23 pristine bays and beaches, although many of these are only accessible by boat.

Magnetic Island National Park is the most visited after the Great Barrier Reef. The island is home to koalas, rock wallabies, brush-tail possums and an abundance of birds. Nearly 70% of Magnetic Island (approx. 5184 hectares) is National Park. There is so much to explore for you in this place.

Fantasea Cruising Magnetic Ferries is one of the Australia's favorite car and passenger ferry. All their ferries feature facilities to make your journey enjoyable. The company offers up to 8 return services daily. Over the busy period of time there will be offered extra services. The sailing takes approximately 40 minutes each way. On a day of travel you are required to arrive at the terminal at least 20 minutes prior to departure.
