This winding trail will take you to the top of a large boulder with breath taking views.

As you make your way up the granite cliff, the trail is a gradual climb with stairs carved out of the rocks.

White cockatoo in the trees watching you and squawking as you past, and osprey and Kites sore in the sky looking for prey.

Then once you reach the top you will find a large bolder with a safety fence around it, with an amazing view towards Townsville and back over the island to Nelly and Geoffrey bays.

So they could learn to draw blood.

Ahhh magic Maggie really put the magic on for you guys eh!

One day I'll go back to stay awhile again, but who knows when...So jealous!

So glad you had such a great time!

Maggie is such a fun island to explore! I hope you get to go back one day soon 😊

Yes me too!
I remember when I was about 17 calling mum in Bega at about midnight and drunkenly saying hey mum guess what! I'm overseas! And she was yelling going where where where and I'm like, I'm on Heron Island! Shit I put her through so much! Drunkenly calling her from the Tathra pub at 3am when I was 15 (school the next day..), hey mum can you come and pick me up please...🤣 Oh poor woman! When I think what I put her through...

I was a bit older when I went to Maggie though...and unfortunately can't even remember when, though I do remember with who...I think maybe pre-xmas 99..

Anyway, yes love to go back again one day! Back to all the islands and a belated staff reunion on Hammo Island too..

Haha yes I think we all put our mothers through hell when we were younger 😂
So many great islands up there!
My mate worked on hammo. In the mid 2000s, it was always fun going there for a visit and staying in the staff rooms. Good times indeed😊

Haaaa yessss....hmmmmm what happens on Hammo stays on Hammo...Especially in the staff quarters...🤣 and especially in A block...🤡
