The Butlers did it!
The Butler family were Magnetic's first European settlers. They began the first holiday accommodation on Magnetic and it seems their hospitality was extended to all who came their way - from tourists, quarantined travellers and the Island's Traditional Owners the Wulgurukaba. Now the MI History and Craft Centre are saluting the Butlers with a fascinating exhibition and the release of a recipe book from the "unsurpassed table" of Nell Butler.
