“We had a wonderful holiday at Sue and Mels home. Magnetic Island is idyllic, we wanted a restful holiday and that was exactly what we got. The house was extremely comfortable and we felt very much at home. Sue and Mel could not of been more helpful and accommodating, lending their car to us and helping arrange trips out. We enjoyed walking on the island and time swimming in the sea from the near empty beaches, the reefs off the beaches being wonderful. Everyone we met on Magnetic island and in Townsville was friendly and helpful, the public bus driver even diverted his route to drop us at the ferry. We had never home swapped before, but don t think there is any way our experience could of been improved. A big thank you to Sue Mel and Lovehomeswap. ”
Where is it?
Magnetic Island (Known by locals as "Maggie") is a beautiful tropical island with easy access to the Great Barrier Reef.
It is an easy 20 minute ferry trip from Townsville, unofficial capital of far north Australia. Maggie offers a relaxing holiday suitable for families and those who want a quiet escape, away from more commercial places, although there are plenty of appealing restaurants and pubs for those who want a break from household chores.
The scenery is dazzling and the locals (both human and animal) are friendly and approachable.
