Just 8 kilometres of the shore of Townsville, Magnetic Island is the only island on the North Queensland Coast with a delightful blend of untouched National Park, a resident population of about 2,500 and a variety of holiday resorts. Despite being located in the tropics, the Townsville area is in a rain shadow which makes it the sunniest city on the Queensland coast - Magnetic Island averages over 320 days of sunshine per year!
