Picnic Bay is located at the south end of Magnetic Island. There are a number of shops and restaurants situated throughout the Picnic Bay Mall, as well as a selection of accommodation, including hostels and hotels. You can also hire bikes, cars and scooters to get around the island. Situated in the middle of the bay is the old jetty, which is no longer used, but a great spot for fishing.

The two bays either side of Picnic Bay are well worth visiting. To the west is Cockle Bay where you will find the wrecked City Of Adelaide, and to the east is Rocky Bay which is a local hotspot for sun-lovers and one of the Island's top beaches for swimming and snorkelling.... less
Most shops are open from Monday through to Saturday.
