Blackburn Osteo’s Ben has continued his ongoing efforts to escape the month of August by taking his family up to magnetic island. Just off the coast of Townsville the island boasts magnificent hikes, fantastic food, swimming and snorkelling on the great barrier reef, all of which Ben enjoyed whist stylishly traveling around in his topless 4WD (ok I’ll admit it looked like a barbie’s pink convertible)

In what was dubbed Melbourne’s worst week of the year, Ben and the fam relaxed in the sun the only way they know how, at a million miles an hour trying to fit as much into each day as humanly possible. The highlight of the holiday being without doubt Ben’s son James taking his first steps on the last day before they came home.
