If you like hiking, walking & riding scooters while taking in some great local pubs this is the place. Still at one with nature, not over run with high rises but you can still camp/picnic or fine dine...each end of the spectrum.

We recently stayed here for 4 nights with overseas inlaws. What a place! Beautiful spacious clean rooms, immaculate gardens, lovely sparkling pool and no one in sight. The licensed kiosk was very cheap and was a minute walk to the beach. What I loved was the abundant wildlife that inhabitated the resort. So many friendly lorikeets that would eat out... More

Back for a second visit - with the kids this time. Lovely resort, very relaxed and family friendly, staff/owners are very friendly and helpful. Kids loved the games room (air hockey, pool table & ping pong table) and they also enjoyed the craft activities and the tennis court. The "library" is a lovely touch with a great selection of books... More

We stayed at Island Leisure resort for 3 nights during Magnetic sailing week. The resort offered high quality, comfortable, well equipped accommodation. The pool, gardens and communal areas were immaculate. The staff were very friendly and helpful and I would highly recommend staying at this resort. It was conveniently situated for the beach, public transport, shops, cafe's and restaurants.

My wife and I recently spent a few days enjoying the beautiful scenery if Magnetic island and found this great resort aimed at budget family get-aways. Conveniently located a short walk from the ferry and with easy bus access to Picnic, Arcadia and Horseshoe Bays it was a wonderful base for our adventures.
