We took our car on the ferry over to Magnetic Island, and left the van in storage, it’s only a short 30 minute boat trip. We stayed in a holiday apartment at Horseshoe bay while on the island, it was right oposite the beach and playground.
It was weird being in a large space again, and in the end I do prefer the caravan and having our own things, but we were in a good location close to cafe’s and swimming. The island is nice and small and you can drive everywhere in 15 mins.
While on the island we snorkled, did the forts historic walk, saw wild koalas from the netflix show “Izzies Koala World” (Keiras a big fan) and some 4×4 driving.
