Comprehensive weekend guide to Canberra – What to see and do, Where to go and Where to stay?

I never thought I would say this…. BUT I don’t think a weekend (or a long weekend) is long enough in Canberra….. I know I’m shocked too! I have always thought Canberra would be boring because its all about politics and politicians, it’s not exactly a travel destination like Sydney or Melbourne but wow I had so much fun in Canberra!!!!

Get to Magnetic Island before the crowds discover this Tropical Paradise

Get to Magnetic Island before the crowds discover this Tropical Paradise

Magnetic Island is a 52 km² mountainous tropical island located a short 20min Sealink ferry ride (8km) off shore from Townsville. The island features rocky granite headlands with towering pines, swaying palms and eucalyptus woodlands overhanging an almost crystal clear blue ocean with sandy bays, and let’s not forget that the island is surrounded by bustling colourful coral reefs. The name “Magnetic Island” came about because of the apparent "magnetic" effect it had Captain Cook’s  ship's compass as he passed the island when sailing up the east coast of Australia in 1770, however this has since been disproved and is known by the locals as “Maggie”.
