Good beach to walk along and look for coral and shells. Also a good place to launch kayak. Art Gallery over the road at one end, old ferry Wharf to explore at the other end and a paddle or swim in between.

This is a very easy, flat walk with water on one side and bush on the other. We had a friend who showed us where she fished, where she cleaned the fish and her favourite boulder when a child. I was amazed at how well...More

So there's a beach and a shipwreck, which is apparently great for snorkeling, however the highlight for me is hand feeding the adorable Rock Wallabies. This is up close and personal, in the wild not a zoo and it's totally free! Maggie Island is definitely...More

We went here at the end of our trip to magnetic island and saw some wallabies. Very unique experience although they are pretty shy. You can feed them which in this case means, putting the food somewhere and hope they gonna take it :-).

What an amazing place. We went there several time during our stay on Magnetic Island and each time there were lots of wallabies that we could even feed. Excellent views and scenery at Geoffrey Bay.

The beach is neat and clean with clean grass and good facilities - BBQ gas, toilets and sand. Highlight is to see Rock Wallabies feeding - you can buy feed for them. Whilst not a good practice, at least they are not being fed fruit...More

The last time we visited Geoffrey Bay the number of Rock Wallabes the point was crawling with them, but this time only a few been about, however take plenty of bread and feed the fish- some must be over three feet in length.

This is a gorgeous beach and the walk to the point is stunning. There's the rock wallabies at sunset, with a warning not to feed them but if you must, there's a list of acceptable food to feed them. Just be careful walking along the...More
