One of our faves – Maggie Island. Just a 20 min ferry from Townsville, this lush tropical island gives us serious island vibes and is the perfect place to kick back and relax on a secluded beach with the unreal spots to snorkel in. Check out the local Koalas & Rock Wallabies around the Island. The perfect way to explore Maggie is to rent a 4wd topless jeep AKA the topless pink barbie cars (which you can hire when you are there)… get your pal’s together and hit the road – #ratpackroadie style!
