Wake with wallabies and watch in delight as they bound across a beach at sunrise, cool off at the base of a waterfall under the canopy of the rainforest then follow a river trail to where platypuses play.
Explore the architectural Art Deco treasures in city of Mackay, where its streets are the perfect blend of tropical and cosmopolitan, awash with inviting cafes, bars and restaurants. The modern marina at Mackay’s harbour offers waterfront al fresco dining along a picturesque palm-lined promenade.
Wet a line in one of Australia’s best fishing locations. Whether you enjoy the serenity of chasing barramundi at an inland dam or the deep-sea thrill of a big game expedition; the Mackay Region won’t leave you floundering for choice.
A number of idyllic beaches are located north of Mackay, in an area collectively known as the Northern Beaches. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself leaving solitude footprints in the sand, that’s part of the appeal.
