Magnetic Island State School

Welcome to Magnetic Island State School's website.

Maggie Island is located approximately 8 kilometres off the coast of Townsville in north Queensland. It is easily accessible by a 20 minute ferry ride from the mainland.

The island is predominantly National Park with four main residential areas (Picnic Bay, Nelly Bay, Arcadia and Horseshoe Bay) on the eastern side of the island.

The school is located in Nelly Bay - a 10 minute walk from the ferry terminal.

We are a small school (approximately 200 students) that is supported by its hard working but friendly community.  The staff are highly professional educators with many years experience. 

If you are interested in visiting the school please come in and make an appointment.  Our friendly administration staff will be more than happy to show you around!
