Island Magic - Positive Futures?

On Saturday 16th September 2023 the exhibition and launch of "Island Magic - Positive Futures?" (a commuity ghost net weaving project) was held at the Nelly Bay ferry terminal on Magnetic Island.


This intricate work of tireless hours by many, people highlighted the weavers' aim to raise awareness and to educate our community and visitors about the damage done with ghost nets in the sea, particularly focussing on our special Island environment as part of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.
