Day 1: Arrive into Townsville and make your way to the ferry terminal for your transfer to Magnetic Island. Settle into your accommodation, unwind by the large lagoon style pool with a cocktail and a book, or explore the island further and enjoy one of the many walks that start from just outside your hotel.
Day 2: Experience the Great Barrier Reef for yourself on a full day cruise out to Lodestone Reef. Chosen for its diversity of sites, great coral cover, fish life and reasonable protection, it is ideal for snorkellers, beginners and experience divers.
Day 3: Catch the ferry back to Townsville at a time that suits, and the rest of the day is free to explore at your leisure. Perhaps you may like to visit the Museum of Tropical Queensland or experience the Reef without getting wet at the world’s largest living coral reef aquarium, Reef HQ.
Day 4: This morning discover those hidden secrets of Townsville that most visitors never get to see. Enjoy a walk around the River way precinct and hear stories about the early explorers of the region. Enjoy morning tea at the Heritage Tea and experience the views from Thornton’s Gap at the top of the mountain range.
Day 5: Today there is free time for any last minute sightseeing or shopping before your flight.
