Magnetic Island is a great location - even though it’s off-shore - it’s like a suburb of Townsville. Public ferries, public buses, normal shops etc, normal people walking their dogs etc. So it’s cheap to visit, but also has amazing scenery and a great vibe.
We were so lucky that we booked in to C Stay. The host (Anton) was charming, and helpful, but not intrusive.
The place is well set up, comfortable, clean and quiet, but only 3 minutrs walk away from the beachfront pubs and restaurants. Great for people who are just travelling/holidaying, but not partying. I particularly appreciated the well appointed shared kitchen, great showers (hot, good pressure), nice refreshing swimming pool, lots of seperate sitting / dining areas (so you can watch, or escape the TV, as you choose).
