Historic Site
“The Forts walk is one of the iconic walks on Magnetic Island. It's your best chance to see koalas in the wild, and it offers you WWII history combined with stunning views of Horseshoe Bay and Cleveland Bay. You'll need to hop on a bus, hire a car or drive your way to The Forts, but it's a not-to-be-missed destination on Maggie.”
