Fun Photos from Magnetic Island

Magnetic Island: An Australian Wonderland

Magnetic Island is alive with Australian birds and animals. I have never been to a place with such a high concentration of tame wildlife in such a small area before. There were thousands of semi-tame lorikeets that visited the hostel daily, as well as a kookaburra who ate straight from my hand! Arthur Bay had a huge abundance of fish and even a whale swam past while we were there. On the other side, a 15 minute walk from the hostel, is a nudist beach called Balding Bay, covered in boulders and pine trees. Magnetic Island is the perfect place to take a couple of amazing pictures and spend a few days.
