“Great campground loved the curry”
Reviewed May 25, 2006

Stayed for 5 nights in Aug 05 in a campervan powered sight. A lovely camp ground near to the resort and beach. Loads of walks near by and things to see. Lovely rainbow parakeets arrive every evening to be fed - amaxing. Really friendly people behind the reception desk who told us everything we needed to know. The facilities were clean and maintained regularly. There is a great bar that serves food in the evening including an amazing curry. Would love to return.

We chose to book a room at bungalow bay after a recommendation in a travel guide. The journey to Magnetic Island was tiring as the ferries do not run very frequently. However, when we got there we were greeted by extremely friendly staff and a gorgeous wooden cabin for our 3 night stay. We chose to eat at the in-house curry house which our hungry stomachs welcomed but we'd tasted better!! Fun was had on magnetic island doing water-skiing, hiring a topless car, relaxing on the beach, seeing rock wallabies and eating out (I can recommend the Sandbar, Horseshoe bay). I would highly recommend bungalow bay to anyone travelling to Maggie Island.

Basic but perfectly adequate A-frame chalet accom set in lush tropical Maggie Island garden setting. Wildlife a go-go (including noisy peacock wake-up calls & daily lorikeet feeding frenzies)! Gorgeous pool, brand new bar & the most fantastic in-house curry place. Friendly atmosphere & staff. But, they will say anything to seal the deal on excursions & trips you might be interested in. This we discovered when booking a Beaches trip with them. Lots more info is needed to be given & this would be my only major complaint. Located in Horseshoe Bay minutes from the beach, you might spot dolphins or dugongs in the balmy waters at sunset if you're really lucky. Then again, if you've made it to Magnetic Island you can count yourself lucky anyway.
