Base Backpackers Magnetic Island hostel is situated on the beach of Magnetic Island, only 20 minutes by ferry from Townsville. We stayed in a double ocean view room ensuite. It was right along the water and the view looking out while lieing in bed was amazing. We got to watch the sunrise from bed one of the mornings.
Located in Nelly Bay, just 164 feet from the beach, Island Leisure Resort offers self-contained bungalows with a flat-screen TV. The property also features a swimming pool and tennis court. Really lovely staff who couldn’t do enough for us. Excellent facilities and the room was incredible!!
Arcadia Beach Guest house is a unique laid back experience, offering the perfect Island getaway. Best place I've visited so far. Loved the wood being everywhere and the tents! But specifically the staff that was kind and always there to help us with any need. Clean, tidy and comfortable place 5⭐
Located in Nelly Bay in the Magnetic Island region, with Nelly Bay Beach and Magnetic Island Marina nearby, SEA-esta provides accommodations with free WiFi and free private parking. Lovely bedroom and great A/C. Location was fantastic and the staff were friendly and very knowledgeable about the local attractions, would definitely recommend.
This waterfront property features panoramic ocean views from every apartment. The apartment was very well located and had everything need foe a 6 night stay. The place was clean and well maintained. Ian, the manager, was very helpful in answering all my questions.

Magnetic Islanders were very friendly and helpful. Very good IGA supermarket. A few restaurants with OK food. Well serviced by public buses (which very effectively link up the whole island). Very good forrest walk between Nellie Bay and Arcadia
Nelly Bay was good as a base; walking distance to the ferry and serviced by 2 supermarkets. A good bus service on the island but overtaxed by the number of people. other "villiages" did not have the supermarkets so you were purchasing takeaway or resturant food which was more expensive. Yes; we could have gone on more walks, or snorkled or maybe taken a cruise; but overall it was a limited holiday.
The accomodation was good and the host outstanding. Lisa picked us up from the ferry. Recommended things to do, visit and places to eat. Saw a koala on the way to the fort. Take a drinking bottle of water. Eat at SOS and the pirate cafe. The pizza placewas good for a cold beer too. The local bus was easy to get around but next time we will probably hire a motor scooter. Enjoy!
This is the stopping off point for Magnetic Island for both vehicles by barge and a first class Sealink passenger service. The Best of Magnetic rental agency provides properties and rental vehicles and are extremely helpful. Scallywags and Stuffed on Seafood are typical laid back island restaurants and Peppers boardwalk restaurant and bar has views over the marina. IGA have a store with fresh food from Townsville. There are a number of walks, one through the bushland to Arcadia and another along the coast to Arcadia. The bus service goes one way to Picnic Bay and the other direction to Horseshoe Bay stopping at Arcadia and a starting point to the WW2 forts walk high up on the island.
If you want a place to recharge and get your mojo back this is the place for you, close to everything from hire cars to IGA. Across the road is a Sea Food restaurant called SOS and it is really very good, with fresh fair and well priced. The friendly staff are an added bonus
Nelly Bay has port for ferry from mainland. A few shops, IGA and Foodland and a few nice restaurants. Not the prettiest tourist place but a good place to start. Scallywags Restaurant and SOS seafood lovely food. Arcadia Beach hotel just up the road is a social hub with meals. A few car hire places and bookings for trips all here. You can walk from shop to shop as small area but need a car to get around or take the bus that leaves from Nelly Bay and goes to various beaches.
We originally booked this accommodation as we were to participate in Magnetic Island race week. We were to be on our boat all day and just in need of a shower and a bed. The event was cancelled and then with Covid my partner found himself out of Australia for 11 weeks. Thank you for allowing us to change our dates. We had a great 6 night stay. We are locals from Townsville and enjoyed our time. It’s a shame the weather wasn’t perfect we ended up with a very windy week. The unit was clean and very accommodating, we will be back.
Absolutely loved Arcadia Lodge, staff were great and location couldn’t have been better. Just a short stroll to great pub & coffee shop & convenience store around the corner. We hated to had to leave and will hopefully get back there before heading home to Victoria as there is so much to see & do. We met some really nice people while staying there & met the resident echidnas while there. We would like to thank Ian, V & Craig for their hospitality and advise all that Magnetic Island had to offer.
The villa is so great. it has all the facilities and it is very comfortable. The kitchen, laundry, toilet has all the facilities, so easy to use. And the bed is so comfortable. The villa includes the common swimming pool and it is great located on the Magnetic Island. A really good place to stay.
The accommodation for perfect for our needs as a young family. It was very clean and had all the facilities we needed to have a relaxing and enjoyable beach holiday stay. The host was available to answer our questions promptly. We would highly recommend this lovely cottage to others.
Was a home away from home for a short stay.. but on an island on holiday! Had everything needed and more. Appreciated the thought put in to this by the owners. Very comfortable and clean. Pool at this resort wonderful.
Entire cottage felt brand new and immaculately clean on arrival. Our entire stay was relaxed and easy to navigate from a great location while having basic holiday staples provided also
location was great and away from main strip scooter availability outside close to both picnic bay and nelly bay beach was great people were nice great views from room
-Good facilities -Comfortable bed -Looks just like the photos -Netflix available on tv -Good for a couple who wants a cheap place to stay but wants privacy and amenities
Unbelievable views and apartment- photos are exactly what you get as far as view and location. Will definitely book the same apartment next time we go to Magnetic Island
