Magnetic Island Visitors Guide


The eerie and unforgettable sounds heard at night on Magnetic Island are the cries of the Bush Stone curlew.

Most visible at dusk, or full moon nights, the curlew are nocturnal and can therefore be hard to find during the day.

Curlews can be found all over the Island, however you can best view them at Amaroo on Mandalay (61-79 Mandalay Avenue
Nelly Bay) and Sandals on Horseshoe (Sandals Blvd Horseshoe Bay).
