Officially a suburb of Townsville, Magnetic Island is a gorgeous day trip from the main city. Skirted by beautiful, sun-drenched beaches and calm bays, the Magnetic Island National Park offers great bushwalking and a superb opportunity to spot koalas and wallabies. You can even take a ride in a hot-pink, topless, Barbie-inspired car! Ferries run throughout the day from 5:30am until midnight.
