Hello. Im currently in Melbourne but thinking i would like some sun for a few days so planning a trip up to Cairns and then maybe getting the bus down to Townsville and going across to magnetic Island. Just wondered if people had been to Magnetic Island-what they thought, what there was to do and where was good to stay. Im not really a huge party animal im more interested in the sightseeing than the clubbing if im honest!! Anyway any tips on Cairns, Townsvile and Magnetic Island will be muchly appreciated!!
I wrote a heap in the Cairns destination bit. Ch-ch-ch-check it out!
hostels are a bit expensine so check before you go. its well worth a vist a bit quite .went there after a heavy week in airlie beach and the withsundays and it was a good break . alma beach is nice
i went to magnetic island a few years ago - i would day it's worth a stop. there are some nice walks and some good snorkelling. i did manage to find some backpacker accommodation but it wasn't that great - i think there are several budget options on the island though.
