Experience the endless summer party that is Full Moon Down Under Party

BASE Backpackers Magnetic Island is located right on the beach and is the ONLY place to Stay and Play, chill out in the sun by day and groove to funky tunes at the Island Bar by night.

Base Backpackers Accommodation, Magnetic Island There's a choice of dorm rooms at BASE from mixed dorms to the female sanctuary dorms which includes a sanctuary pamper package on arrival. Some of the double rooms at our Magnetic Island Hostel are situated right on the rocks overlooking the ocean!

The Island bar has extensive decks overlooking the water, spend a lazy afternoon sipping on a drink and take in the magnificent views BASE has to offer. By night the party scene comes alive with funky tunes and awesome bar games to keep the crowd entertained. The Island bar is the best party bar on the island, because there is always something going on, whether it is lying back and sipping dacquiris on a “lazy Tuesday”, grooving to the funky beats of local DJs on a Friday or Saturday or the raucous Ladies Night - where everyone dressed as a lady is treated like a “queen”!

BASE Magnetic Island also has an onsite cafe open for breakfast and dinner daily with affordable and tasty food right at your doorstep. Now open for lunch Sat & Sun!!
