Island Leisure Resort is a multi-award-winning tropical resort with Polynesian-style burés located on Magnetic Island.
We are ideally located in Nelly Bay, only 50m from the beach, 150m from the supermarket and shops, and 1km from the ferry terminal and harbour complex. Cafés and restaurants are within easy walking distance and the island bus stops at our door. With only 18 buré units, you will never get that crowded feeling. There is plenty of room at the pool and always times available to play tennis.
Magnetic Island, 8km from Townsville in Tropical North Queensland, is a very beautiful and very special place. It has a unique blend of national park, a variety of holiday accommodation and a small residential population of about 2,000, all within World Heritage Marine Park.
Some of the best beaches and most picturesque bays in Queensland are found on the island, with the more secluded ones accessible only by walking track or boat. With an average of 320 fine, sunny days a year, the island has the perfect weather to enjoy them.
Our burés are perfectly designed for the relaxed tropical holiday. We have a range of burés to suit singles, couples and families. The entire resort is wheelchair accessible and two burés are built to the lastest disability code. All burés are self contained, have a large digital TV, split-system air-conditioning, ceiling fans and private patios for those balmy tropical nights. Linen is supplied and burés are serviced weekly with towels changed every three days.
The patios of each buré provide a very relaxed setting to sip a drink, have breakfast, or just enjoy the surroundings. Set in lush tropical gardens, the resort has an array of wildlife including beautiful birds, curlews, rock wallabies, possums and the occasional koala.
Our large lagoon pool incorporates a spa and beach area, and there is plenty of room for guests to relax. The poolside BBQ area is a great place of enjoyment for our guests. Relax by the pool, cook up some exotic fare, and sip an ice cold wine or beer in good company. Life doesn't get much better.
Overlooking the pool area is our games room and a licensed kiosk serving light food and beverages. Play a game of pool or table tennis. Choose a book from our library and relax by the pool. An array of board games are also available. Adjacent to the games room is a guest laundry with coin-operated washers, dryers and ironing facilities.
Next to the pool is our full-sized tennis court. Use of the court and all equipment is available free to our guests. Giant Chess is located in the resort gardens and is very popular with the young and old alike.
