Magnetic Island

Maggie Island is a pretty cool little island just offshore from Townsville.  Its much nicer than T'ville, being more tropical and nice beaches, etc.  We've gone over a couple of times, staying a weekend at a hostel one of the times.  They're in a somewhat random order, deal with it.
