Necessity is outside Townsville

Fantastic overnight sail up to Magnetic Island outside Townsville. We just anchored and the island looks beautiful. Horse Shoe bay has a Caribbean look. We know there are some wildlife like koalas in the woods, and probably some snakes. The snakes are most places and we saw a couple down on Whitsunday Island. This being Australia we assume that they are poisonous.
We will definitely go looking for the koalas though, and if we don't find them there is a small private zoo. They offer cuddling of koalas and crocs (the latter get their mouths taped).
More next week when we will be sailing up to Cairns.
