Magnetic Island is a picturesque island located in Far North Queensland, situated off the coast from Townsville. It is about 340Km south of Cairns, and 340 north of the Whitsunday Islands group. It sits within the Great Barrier Reef, and is a World Heritage listed island surrounded by maritime reserves. It is known for its huge granite rocks and headlands protecting many little bays and beaches. It is not a resort island. More than two thousand people live on "Maggie" as it is fondly known, and it has a strong community, hiding away in villages and retreats. And The Island has a unique character and mix of people. It is popular for bush walking, swimming, snorkeling, diving (reef and the Yongala wreck) and just plain relaxing in the tropics.
Our house, Cap Vilano, is in Arcadia, one of the 4 small coastal villages on the Island. It is a short walk to Alma Bay and Geoffrey Bay. A local bus runs regularly between the ferry terminal and the villages. There are regular passenger and car ferry services to Townsville on the mainland.

We are a married couple and whilst retired are still very active. Travelling is our favourite past-time and we have had some 30 successful home exchanges. We particularly like the home-exchange format of living in the location as a local rather than as a tourist. Our ideal exchange is a home or apartment in a small village, within walking distance to the bakery. Or an apartment in the heart of an interesting city, or a home with a lovely local, rural or water view.
