Just off the coast of Townsville, Queensland and yet seemingly a world way on the Great Barrier Reef, Magnetic Island has a reputation as an island that enjoys nature during the day, and parties through the night. Some 800 koalas call the island home, neighbors to rock wallaby and over 180 species of birds. Divers flock to Magnetic Island for the wreck of the SS Yongala,a passenger ship that sank in 1911 in only 100 feet of water.
