A beautiful slice of paradise.

Flew to Townsville and took a ferry to island. First went shopping at ferry wharf then took a taxi to Horseshoe Bay. Amazing house near a swamp (called a lagoon on the brochures) which was magical. A quick walk through the forest lead to beautiful Horseshoe Bay. Lovely beachfront with palm trees. Saw a turtle (which was not well). walked around and up a mountainous hill and ate often on the waterfront. YHA nearby so went to animal park/Koala Sanctuary

Next to Arcadia where we went on lots of walks around the island. Walked to town along coast and generally enjoyed a peaceful 10 days. Bliss. Photos say more than I could.

Saw many, many koalas in the wild on Magnetic island. There is a huge colony.
