Island Tranport

There are many ways of getting around the 20+ kilometres of scenic Magnetic Island roads.
Hire a modern, air-conditioned sedan or hatch and cruise the Island in comfort.
Lightweight, fuel efficient, low emission vehicles are the latest addition to the range of vehicles available on the Island.


Four wheel drives are the way to go if you wish to experience the Island’s tranquil, more out of the way beaches and bays such as West Point.


NB: Check for road conditions on the West Point Road druing wet season Dec-April.


Scooters are a great, fun option and you just need a car license.
Trail bikes are a more adventurous option for those with a motorcycle license who also enjoy exploring the Island’s more remote beauty spots.


Bicycles are available for hire if you are fit and keen to take on the Island’s hills and headlands.
Purple escooters (electric) are also available from Nelly Bay to Geoffrey Bay.


The local bus service meets every ferry and their very convenient, Island-wide timetable is near the back of this guide. Ticket options include one way trips, as well as all day and multi- day passes. Taxis are available also.
A taxi or bus is the best way to get “home” after enjoying a few drinks and a great night out at one of the Island’s many venues. Guided tours of the Island can be done
by tour bus complete with a commentary.


You can also circumnavigate the Island on the water by jetski, kayak or with a wide variety of boating and fishing tours.
