Arcadia at Magnetic Island

Natural Attractions

Arcadia is perfectly situated in the smallest of the four main bays on Magnetic Island, and is surrounded by the prominent Alma Bay and Geoffrey Bay.

Geoffrey Bay is a Marine National Park Zone – which means no fishing or collecting – but is great for exploring during low tide. The old barge jetty is a great spot for feeding rock wallabies at dusk.

Alma Bay is a very popular swimming spot for local and visitors alike. The Arcadian Life Saving Club patrols the beach on weekends and public holidays. Public amenities include a gas barbecue, picnic tables, shaded children’s playground, changing areas and toilets.

Alma Bay is famous for its ANZAC Day Commemorations. Real-life soldiers from the Thirty-Fifth Field Squadron (Reservist Engineers) annually re-enact the events that took place and make a dawn landing right on the beach.
