Forts Walk

A travel blog entry by tom.steibelt


Woke to another sunny day so decided to catch a bus up the island to the Forts Walk, where you can check out some WWII gun placements and hopefully some Koala bears. It was baking hot by the time we got there, but we made it to the top and the views were pretty incedible. We could see over the whole island and back across the channel towards …

... wombat it was so fun! The wombat was a bit shy so didn't come out of it's enclosure meaning that we were allowed in to say hello which was really mad! Koala- the koala was so fluffy and soft! They let us hold one of the girls who was nine years old and called Noah, and being a girl it mean that she didn't smell bad which was good haha!

    The Sails on Horseshoe is a great spot to stay at the lovely Horseshoe Bay on Magnetic Island.

    The hosts, Chris and Alastair, are lovely people who are extremely gracious and accommodating.

    The rooms are spacious townhouses, over two levels, which are just lovely. The beds were comfortable and it was great having a bathtub!

    There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, and I'd highly recommend this hotel!
