“ 138 Sooning St / Nelly Bay / Magnetic Island / 4819 / Australia / Tel: (07) 4758 1111 / Car hire on Magnetic island „
One thing I love about magnetic island is the amount of topless barbie cars there are cruising around the place.
Magnetic Island has around 7Km of roads that you can drive these cars, and some of the best views of the islands are from the sweeping corners. You could take the bus, or hire a topless car and get the wind in your hair.
These cars cost between $50 - $80 a day with petrol, you need to leave a deposit or credit card that has $1000 on it. The best way to avoid loosing this deposit is to not climb over the back, get in through the hole that is the door. Also drive carefully, the island roads are not in the best condition, and a rogue pothole can do serious damage.
There is some seriously bad driving on this island from people in rented cars, I once saw someone do a 3point turn very slowly on a blind bend. So make sure you are over 21 with a drivers license and dont let your mates drive who dont have a license as it invalidates the insurance.
The hire office is directly opposite the ferry terminal, just to the right of the cafe and IGA supermarket.
