Our property is a dual key apartment in the Peppers Blue on Blue complex. Situated on the top floor it has beautiful views over the marina and beach and the mountains and bush.
We lived on Magnetic Island for nine years and operate a charter boat Providence V based in the Whitsundays. Providence V used to sail out of Nelly Bay and departed from a berth right outside the window.
Magnetic Island is one of those charming places that has special 'island time'. It is one of the only Great Barrier Reef islands to have a postcode and has 4 villages: Nelly Bay (where you arrive on the ferry); Picnic Bay; Arcadia and Horseshoe Bay and is home to around 2000 people. We would really recommend the Forts Walk. You can get there by bus - it's on the road to Horseshoe Bay at the Radical Bay turnoff. It's about 3/4 of an hour walk and you are almost guaranteed to see a koala in the wild. It also has the best preserved fortification from WWII on the eastern seaboard. There are lots of walks as three quarters of the island is national park. Horseshoe Bay is the best for water activities and Picnic Bay is a beautiful quieter spot. Balding Bay (walk from Horseshoe Bay) is only accessible by boat and is also one of our favourites. Eating out: Man Friday in Nelly Bay does great enchilladas and other cuisine and both the pubs at Horseshoe and Picnic are usually good. Fish and chips from the shopping complex in Nelly on the corner of Mandalay Ave and Sooning Street highly recommended.
