Townsville is a great spot to base one’s self to take in some of the very best nature experiences north Queensland has to offer.
Magnetic Island’s Fort walk is famous not just for its amazing views but the fact that it’s home to one of north Queensland’s largest wild populations of koalas. It’s a great way to have a up close and personal encounter with the iconic Aussie animal.
Whilst on Magnetic Island, a great place to stay is Peppers Blue on Blue. It’s just a minute’s walk from the marina and has plenty of options to suit every kind of traveler. Hotel rooms, deluxe apartments and gorgeous penthouses with up to four bedrooms.
