Magnetic Island this weekend

Still no plans for this coming long weekend? Magnetic Island off Townsville is waiting for you! Locals call it simply ‘Maggie’ as here in Australia we can’t be bothered to use long names of places and we use shorter nicknames 😉

Check this out – our travel agency Lake67 has a great offer for you this weekend:

There is a great chance that you will spot wild koalas on Maggie but, if for some reason you are not in luck, these rock wallabies will be there to say hello! 🙂

If Maggie looks like the place you would want to be this weekend, go downstairs and talk to Carolina, Vicky or Bella and book your trip. You can also message them on FB:
