About Mackay

If the Mackay region’s slogan of ‘Nature. Reserved.’ is anything to go by, it’s incredible place to get in touch with the Australian land. It’s only an hour-and-a-half flight to Mackay from Brisbane, while it’s close to 4 hours from Sydney. By car, you’re facing a ten-hour drive from Brisbane and 8-and-a-half from Cairns.
Aussies head to Mackay from all over the country just for the fishing. The oceans, lakes and rivers, plus being the meeting point for northern and southern fish varieties, makes the region a hot spot for all abilities. To give you some ideas, take a look at the Mackay Harbour Beach, Blacks Beach, Theresa Creek Dam and Lake Barfield, to name a few.
As for international guests, you’ll be enthralled by the wallabies and kangaroos, which tend to gather in the Cape Hillsborough National Park. If you travel an hour inland from Mackay to the Finch Hatton Gorge in Eungella National Park, keep an eye out for the billed platypus. While you’re in Finch Hatton Gorge, check our Oliver’s Pool, where you can scuba dive.
Mackay is also known as sugar cane country. At its heart is Sarina and the Sugar Cane Shed. While there, you can tour the property, sample cane-sweetened treats or even take a sip of specialty rums and liquors.
Before you book accommodation in Mackay, think about pitching a tent. There are so many pristine camp spots located on beaches, in national parks or holiday parks waiting for you to make your home. Or, if you are inclined for a little luxury, be sure to book ahead in any of the region’s motels, hotels and resorts.
