“Reefstar Cuises”

We were recommended by the amazing Julie at Magnum's to go on Reefstar Cruises to see some of the islands around the Whitsundays. We had a great day with exceptional service from all the crew on board. There were endless amounts of food and nothing was too hard for the staff. Highly recommend them for all ages. We would do it again.

“Greta hostel with amazing staff!!”

My partner and I had a great time staying at magnums.  The staff were super friendly and so helpful!!  Great rooms and clean showers.  Would highly recommend this place to solo or couple travellers! They are also very helpful with booking tours.

“Great advice from people who know the area.”

We went to Magnums wanting to book an outer reef day trip and see white haven beach and the inlet, both including snorkeling.
Sue was terrific, knew all about the options and matched it to our needs.
Made sure we got the best prices too.
Highly recommend them.
