About the package 

Start your Go Bonkers family weekend, with a trip to the Museum of Tropical Queensland, feed those inquisitive minds and discover the fascinating stories of our region. From creative curiosities to marvels of science and history, set the tone for a funny family evening with hours spent in wonder at this world-class collection.

Come smile, laugh, and leave outrageously happy as international comedy hypnotist Matt Hale shares his own modern brand of hypno laughs (NO swinging watches & 100% chicken free!), hypnotising volunteers with hilarious (but tasteful!) consequences as their imaginations hit turbo! A family-friendly event, 'Bonkers!' will have the young and young-at-heart in fits of laughter and ready for a weekend of adventure.

Stay and play in paradise, and head to Magnetic Island to continue the family fun with tours and transfers included in this 'Go Bonkers' package. Take the quick 20-minute trip across on an evening ferry with Sealink Queensland to your island getaway.

Rest your head each night in comfort at Amaroo On MandalaySet against natural bushland, and with its own special healing magnesium pool - this holiday resort will meet every desire.

The rest of your time spent on Magnetic Island is at your leisure - explore the 23 bays and beaches, hike the National Park trails and spot one of North Australia's largest colony of wild koalas. Be sure to grab your snorkel gear from Magnetic Adventure Hire, to take in the world below - particularly on one of the self-guided snorkel trails in Geoffrey Bay or Nelly Bay.
