Mackay is a city that is well known for Art Deco buildings, lush green expanses and an elegant marina. Swelled by the easy access to fresh seafood the city has a vibrant dining precinct and if you’d prefer to catch your meal yourself Mackay is home to some of the state’s best fishing locations. Take a relaxing walk along the stunning beaches right on your doorstep or take a trip out to islands at the southern entrance of the Whitsunday passage.

Take a short drive inland from the city and you will find yourself at the Eungella National Park. A rainforest paradise this stunning location provides the incredible opportunity to swim with a platypus. If this elusive creature cannot be found you won’t leave disappointed, there are secluded waterfalls and rainforest walks that you won’t want to miss. Mackay is the perfect location to experience the best Queensland has to offer with endless wildlife and views that will take your breath away.
