Take a ride on the wild side, and explore the west coast of Magnetic Island!

The west coast has it all ...  and it's the side of "Maggie" that few people see!


From unbelievable sunsets across the Coral Sea to mainland Australia, to rare and critical ecosystems, from thousands of years of Indigenous history and ancient rock formations, to mining for gold, as well as conservation parks with abundant wildlife.

MI Ride is offering two 4WD guided bus tours along the West Point track:

  • A 2 hour West Point Sunset Safari, treating yourselves to the spectacular sunsets of West Point, with a complimentary champagne, beer, wine or juice plus a shared platter.

  • An unforgettable 3 hour West Coast Eco Adventure, covering the ecological splendour and diversity of this drive with a morning tea included.

REVIEW - West Point Sunset Tour


We booked the 2 hour sunset tour and Tim was very knowledgeable, accommodating and just an all round lovely person. If you are visiting the island, this experience with MI Ride is one that can’t be missed. Thankyou Tim!"
