Route details: Magnetic Island
0Kms; 0hr 0m

Catching the 10:30 ferry to Magnetic Island (an after thought on somewhere to visit, and to fill in some time), it already looks like a good plan.

Looking north on the way out of Port Townsville.

Once on the island we checked into the Base X backpackers and found some randy fella right outside our door.

Setting sun back towards Townsville.

There is plenty to do on Magnetic Island with some great snorkeling, maybe a dive course or even combining a ride over the 115m peak (14% incline) and then snorkeling at all the bays … we spent a whole day doing this it was brilliant, getting hot riding up the hills then cooling off checking out the coral and fishes … steepest incline was 22% on a side road.

A view of some coral we didn’t bother to check out …

Colette looks back to the Base X backpackers and says bye bye sadly, but looks forward to the Warriors semi.
