Rooms facing the road where cars unload from the ferry could be noisy for some
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.

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.
Ian was amazing and very helpful explaining everything we could do on the island. My partner and I stayed in one of the safari tent (West Point) for two night which was very confy and relaxing. Fabulous location just in front of the beach in a little tropical forest with a new pool table and very clean bathrooms. We also rented a typical Meggie car to drive around and it was so much fun. A big thank you again to Ian and his staff for making our holiday so enjoyable.
The location and views were absolutely perfect and amazing. Restaurants and shops were a short walk away and having a pool downstairs was great. The apartment was airy and spacious with comfortable furniture throughout. It was a very relaxing place to stay with plenty of space for family games and meals. We had a great holiday together!
Great view from balcony of sea and marina. Furniture really clean and comfortable. The room was fantastic, large area, with kitchenette so we were able to cook basic food. Bed was really comfortable. it was a good area to be in, Nelly Bay was very good for restaurants and bars etc but spread out. Lots of walks and wildlife nearby.
Modern, simple and well-equipped cottage. full kitchen, 2 queen bedrooms, the shower is satisfying. just next door to the grocery and the main Nelly beach is walking distace. Plenty of plants in the garden as well. sitting on the big balcony is wonderful. compare to the hotel, this place is a more homey feeling.
We had a lovely stay at one of the Island Cottages. What a great surprise when we walked in! Everything was so neat, clean and modern - it was great to feel home on Magnetic Island. We can only recommend to stay there for your holidays (and have already done so to our friends!). Will definitely come back!
The rooms were very spacious, and had all we needed. The gardens and pool area were gorgeous. It was very quiet and close to the beach. Staff was fantastic and we enjoyed our relaxing Island stay a lot. We came in July and mainly explored the island on foot. A bus stop is conveniently close to the hotel.
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.
Loved the overall vibe of the hostel right by the water Food was good Overall good place to stay for a fun night or two on magnetic island ! Easy to get to with local bus stop just outside to take you to the ferry
The room was decorated with the history of Magnetic Island which I loved and appreciated. The room and outdoor balcony were refreshing and I felt like I was in a tropical oasis.
