And Now For Some Island Knowledge . . .
Locals About 2500 people live on Maggie. Many work in town and you will probably bump in to a few familiar faces while here. Islanders are usually very friendly but they have had some experiences with schoolies giving them a hard time in the past. Many Islanders are quite elderly while many others are ordinary hard-working people who, like anybody, can get upset by loud music and young people getting too noisy on the streets late at night. Maggie is actually a pretty tolerant place but nobody likes being woken in the night especially if they have to get up early for work!

Tonia In reply to The ongoing price of Nelly Bay Harbour
It's 14 years since I last visited Maggy. I am shocked by Nelly Bay and saddened. It is insensitive, ugly and juxtaposed to the essence of Maggy. I embrace progress in general, but this is poorly conceived and executed. Shame.
