Magnetic Island YHA

Bungalow Bay is a large, friendly and stylish YHA backpacker's hostel, set in the heart of Magnetic Islands National Park. This multi-award winning hostel is easily accessible from Townsville by a 25 minute ferry ride and is situated in the beautiful Horseshoe Bay, just a short walk from some of the most beautiful beaches on the Island. 

Nestled amongst the gardens, each bungalow here will provide you with a balcony, access to shared bathroom facilities, bed linen, and a fan. Some Bungalows have their own bathrooms and air-conditioning. 

This unique accommodation provides an outdoor pool, plenty of hammocks and sun lounges, nightly activities and games in our on-site bar. Bungalow Bay YHA has snorkeling equipment hire, bike hire and of course there is the famous on site Koala Sanctuary, where you can join one of 3 daily tours or enjoy a magnificent buffet breakfast with the koalas on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

The property is 5-minute walk from Horseshoe Bay Beach, where you will find water sports, cafes, restaurants and a convenience store. The nearest supermarket IGA is located in Nelly Bay, a 10-minute drive away.  We are only a 5-minute drive from Arcadia beach and a 15-minute drive from Picnic Bay. Buses run all day, but for a true Magnetic Island experience, topless cars can be hired through our friendly reception staff.

See the friendly reception staff for a Magnetic Island map, and they will send you on your way with all the best places to see on Magnetic Island. We are also a tour desk and can help you book Great Barrier Reef tours, Whitsundays tours, diving trips and much, much more.

After a day of activities on the island, guests can relax in our bean bags in the shared lounge area, use our free Wifi and meet like minded travelers.
