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.

An amazing place to go shop, always a friendly and helpful service, and a nice place to go for breakfast having the playground right next to the cafe so the kids are kept entertained and not restrained at a table. Cheap too !

A1 Mowing & Maintenance

Thanks to A1 for coming out to do my lawn and helping us out when my partner was away working. With a young child, i was unable to do myself, you guys came out within the same week of my call, and did a great job on the lawn. No lawn clippings were left behind, all the patio, pathways were cleaned off and grass clippings taken away. We have 1000+Sq m of land in South Mackay, and you did for a very competitive price. Will keep you in mind for all future mowing needs

The educators here are so lovely and caring towards me and my baby. My child loves it here, and i couldn't ask for better educators and role models for my child whilst at work. I always feel relaxed dropping her off knowing she's in the best hands and she will have a fun filled day.
