VLOG: Magnetic Island

It’s hard not to love Maggie, as she’s affectionately known, with her coastal, rocky walking trails, gum trees full of dozing koalas and surrounding bright turquoise seas. There are also plenty of permanent residents who live and work here, making it feel more like a laid-back community than a holiday hotspot.

Over half of this mountainous, triangular-shaped island’s 52 sq km is national park, with scenic walks and abundant wildlife, including a large (and adorable) rock wallaby population. Inviting beaches offer adrenalin-pumping water sports, and the chance to just bask in the sunshine. The granite boulders, hoop pines and eucalyptuses are a fresh change from the clichéd tropical-island paradise.
