Island Leisure Resort is a multi-award-winning tropical resort with Polynesian-style burés located on Magnetic Island. We are ideally located in Nelly Bay, only 50 metres from the beach, 150 metres from the supermarket and shops, and 1 kilometre from the ferry terminal and harbour complex. Cafés and restaurants are within easy walking distance and the island bus stops at our door. With only 18 burés, you will never get that crowded feeling. There is plenty of room at the pool and always times available to play tennis. Our reception has a tour desk to help you select the most suitable activities and tours to maximise the enjoyment of your holiday, and has complimentary high-speed wireless internet. Our burés are perfectly designed for the relaxed tropical holiday. We have a range of burés to suit singles, couples and families. The entire resort is wheelchair accessible and two burés are built to the lastest disability code. All burés are self contained, have a large digital TV, split-system air-conditioning, ceiling fans and private patios for those balmy tropical nights. Linen is supplied and burés are serviced weekly with towels changed every three days.
My husband Peter and I built Island Leisure Resort in 1992. We have owned and operated the resort since then. We have won many tourism awards over the years including 14 North Queensland awards.
Magnetic Island, 8km from Townsville in Tropical North Queensland, is a very beautiful and very special place. It has a unique blend of national park, a variety of holiday accommodation and a small residential population of about 2,000, all within World Heritage Marine Park. Some of the best beaches and most picturesque bays in Queensland are found on the island, with the more secluded ones accessible only by walking track or boat. With an average of 320 fine, sunny days a year, the island has the perfect weather to enjoy them. More than half the island is national park. Its huge granite boulders and towering hoop pines dominate the mountainous skyline. The rugged natural beauty is a haven for wildlife such as koalas, rock wallabies, possums and a wide variety of tropical bird life. The 25km of walking track through the hills of the park provide an opportunity to see wildlife in its natural habitat and also to enjoy the many spectacular views. Magnetic Island has an abundance of holiday activities ranging from jetski tours to horseriding to bushwalking or just relaxing with a massage.
