The Arcadia cane-toad races have been held every Wednesday night from 8 pm for nearly three decades. Even when the toads aren't racing, Hotel Arcadia's pumping, with three well-patronized bars, regular live bands, pool tables, bistro meals. 7 Marine Parade, Arcadia, Magnetic Island, QLD, 4819. 07/4778–5177 or 1800/663–666. www.hotelarcadia.com.au.
