SS City of Adelaide on Magnetic Island
This is another very popular fishing destination , and with good reason . The waters here are teeming with fish . Spanish mackerel is the most popular catch here . You can also take a walk along the beaches below the cliffs at low tide and grab a feed of oysters off the rocks . Honestly , this place is heaven .
At night , you ’ ll be treated to some of the most spectacular starry skies you ’ ll ever see . They are so bright , you can see the reflection of the Milky Way in the water . It is just incredible .
I have always said if you want to get away for the summer holidays but don ’ t want to put up with the crowds in the southern states , head far north . Yes , you may have to put up with humid , tropical weather , but once you get north of the Tropic of Capricorn , the tourist numbers drop dramatically and you can have your pick of places .
The sites at Ingenia Holidays Tourist Park in Townsville offer plenty of shade .
