Explore a tropical paradise by air, land and sea! This experience combines a helicopter ride, horse riding and a boat cruise to give you a fun filled day dedicated to getting back to nature. Start with a scenic helicopter flight, horse riding from bush to beach and a boat cruise back to town.
If you’re going to do Magnetic Island, you should do it right. Taking in the epic sights from a helicopter, exploring the bushland and beach on horseback, and jumping on board a boat cruise back to town, is doing it right.
Let’s back it up and start with the helicopter ride. You’ll start your day soaring out of Townsville and looking out over the postcard-perfect coastal landscapes of Cleveland Bay and Magnetic Island from the buzzing heights of the chopper. The view from the top is incredible, and there's no feeling quite like the thrill of the flight.
Once you touch down on Magnetic Island it’s time for horseback riding. You’ll ride through the native bushland, across pristine beaches, and if you’re up for it there’s an option to ride bareback straight into the crystal blue water along the shoreline. Whether you’re wading in or you have the energy (and skills) to go full throttle into the ocean, splashing and swimming with your horse is an unforgettable experience.
After horse riding you can actually stick around on the island as it suits you, because the Sea Link boat cruise back to Townsville departs every hour. So wander around, spot some local wildlife, enjoy the beach, grab some food at one of the great restaurants - whatever you’re vibing. When it’s time to go you can get a healthy dose of salty sea breeze and a beautiful view on the cruise back. It’s an ideal, action-packed way to spend the day.
