To Magnetic Island we go!!!!!
It sounds like the name of a cheesy comic book issue and I was half expecting to find a Tracey island setting. However, there were no rockets coming out of volcanoes or any characters called 'Dr Doom!!.' Instead, we found a reserve just off Townsville with little beaches and walking trails.
From mission beach we drove to Townsville. As we were only here for one night I can't really comment on the city. However, there was some groovy sculptures over looking the water.
The next day we took the ferry to Magnetic Island, leaving the little princess alone in a car park. Here we lazed on the beach for a while, had ice creams and watched the world go by.
I got a little bit bored; there is only so much lazing in the sun you can do. Lou and the tall one where pretty happy where they were, so I took to one of the coastal walks to a secluded beach. Perhaps a steep walk was not a good idea in flip flops, but this is what I found.....
Hardly any people and boulders over looking the surf.
