Magnetic Island

Welcome to Paradise

Magnetic Island School Camp

A tropical island paradise only a short 20-minute ferry ride from Townsville. Boasting a unique natural environment and home to Northern Australia’s largest colony of koalas, Magnetic Island is the picture perfect place for outdoor adventures and school camps.

Outer Limits has been facilitating school camp programmes on Magnetic Island since 2013. We are the only locally owned and operated activity provider in the Townsville region. As of 2021 we are independently operating and working with schools directly to create the best camps possible.

Activity Locations


With years of industry experience and unparalleled local knowledge, we can create the ultimate learning environment for your students to challenge themselves and can help them to grow, both individually and as a team. We currently have over 15 different activities on offer, ranging from activities that target soft (Team Games, Beach Olympics, Fishing etc.) and intermediate skills (Archery, Archery Tag, Raft Building etc.), all the way through to advanced skills (Kayaking, SUPing, Abseiling etc.) for experienced adventurers. To help you choose the best adventure for your school, we have provided a list of our activities as a starting point that includes our suggested time allowances, the ideal number of students catered for and the approximate costs. However, we (and our programmes) are flexible and we can work with you to tailor a programme to suit both your school’s and your students’ requirements, including group size and ability, time constraints and budget. We also offer a multi-session discount and can provide risk assessments for each activity upon request.

Alternatively, if you already have a particular activity or experience in mind, please call us – We’re here to help and will do our best to make your Magnetic Island school camp a success.
