Beautiful getaway, a little paradise off the mainland. Secluded, this isn't a party island (with the exception of Base in Nelly bay) you come here to relax and bask in the beautiful surrounds. Slightly disappointed that I could do neither kayaking or horse riding as I was the only one wanting the tour-tail end of the season bit me on the behind. Alas, it mattered not, go and be charmed.
Insider Tip:Come here and completely avoid Townsville-there is nothing to do and its not pretty! Remember your insect repellant and water-humid doesn't cover it. Feed the cutest wallabies at Geoffrey Bay, go prepared with a chopped apple and they will literally eat from your hand
