Magnetic island is a small island just east of Townsville in Queensland.
It is one of the few places in Australia where Koalas are found in the wild.
It was so named because when Captain Cook sailed past it his compass went haywire. ( any excuse for a new name)
We were extremely lucky to see one as they don't come out much in the day.
I have a delightful video of this one having a poo which proves that ( Koala) bears do shit in the woods!!
