Make A Holiday Rental Apartment in Arcadia, Australia, Your Home Away From Home

Australia is an immensely popular holiday destination for people from all over the world, attracted to its great weather and areas of outstanding natural beauty. It is a vast continent that has a great deal to choose from, ranging from tropical areas to an arid, desert interior. Anyone looking to take a holiday in Australia and who would like to be near the coast and have access to the Great Barrier Reef, whilst simultaneously being near to protected parkland areas should consider a holiday in Arcadia. Located on Magnetic Island, a few kilometres off the Townsville coastline in Queensland, it is a stunning place to take a vacation. With a range of accommodation on offer, the best way to enjoy time there is by staying in a holiday rental apartment in Arcadia. Surrounded by all the mod cons that might be expected from a quality rental, it is the perfect place to enjoy the sun, sea and views.

Things to Do on Holiday in Arcadia, Australia

There is a wide selection of leisure activities available to try for anyone staying at a holiday rental apartment in Arcadia. The warm sea is especially suitable for swimming, snorkelling and diving, all of which can be great ways to see the smaller reefs around the island. Guided sea-kayak trips, fishing and sailing are other water sport suggestions, whilst those who would prefer some time on dry land, pony treks, riding and even lawn balls are possible.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Arcadia, Australia

As well as spending some time on the beach, holidaymakers staying in self catering accommodation in Arcadia also have the option to visit areas of interest. Half of Magnetic Island is a national park, and much of this can be explored on a series of footpaths, with one notable route leading to an old World War Two fort. Most people staying in the area will also want to visit the Great Barrier Reef. There are a number of organised tours available, some of which involve glass bottomed boats, snorkelling or even diving. For those that would like to visit a bigger city, Townsville is a short ferry ride away. Whilst it might be short on culture, it makes up for it with lively nightlife.

Weather in Arcadia, Australia

On reflection, the Australian winter time is the best period to take a holiday in Arcadia. (remember the seasons run differently, and winter there is April leading through to September). During this period, the area enjoys warm days and cool nights, accompanied by clear, blue skies. The summer months by contrast are often rainy, and there can even be the occasional cyclones. Most of the years 1000mm of rain falls during the summer wet season.

Travel to Arcadia, Australia

People from outside of Australia will need to fly into the country first in order to begin their holiday in Arcadia. Nearby Townsville does have an airport, but unfortunately, it is not an international one, meaning that at least one connection will need to be made. Townsville Airport (TSV) has flights going to all the major cities such as Cairns, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney, and so international travellers will need to work out the route which works best for them.

Awesome property in a Great location!!

5 of 5
This place is awesome! A great place if you are either on business or pleasure in Townsville. It's waking distance to everything the City and Strand has to offer and only 15-20 minutes from the airport. The Magnetic Island ferry terminal is across the road and the Casino is only about a 300 mt walk. The apartment has everything you need just like being at home. And the hosts are super easy to communicate with and willing to help out at any time. Our stay here was so EASY, relaxed and enjoyable. This place is definitely 5 Stars. Thanks again will be back

Great place that easily accomodates large groups!

4 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tiramula Lodge. It is in a great location with a bus stop down the end of the main street which makes getting around Magnetic Island a breeze if you need to use the bus services. The property is fantastic with full air-conditioning (a nice reprieve from the hot tropical weather and days exploring in the sun), a great deck, multiple fridges and other seating areas inside and outside. The pool is lovely however one recommendation would be to put up a shade sail over the pool as it was very hot (maybe they are waiting for the trees to grow a bit more). Kitchen is well equipped and the laundry has a washing machine and dryer although there is also a washing line and things dry quick in the hot sun! Booking, check in and out was all very straight forward and easy. Lots of parking areas if taking vehicles to the island. Highly recommended.
