Nestled on the banks of one of Australia’s rare blue water rivers, Mackay can be as exciting, or as peaceful, as you desire.

If you’re looking for a destination that brings nature to life, then look no further than Mackay. From beach-lounging wallabies at Cape Hillsborough National Park, to shy-but-oh-so-cute platypus in Eungella National Park and secluded beaches that only a local would know, its got natural attractions on tap.

There are a multitude of ways to get back to nature in the Pioneer Valley and Eungella National Park. Enjoy a coffee or a famous Pinnacle Pie overlooking the canefields in Pinnacle, take in the rainforest canopy on a zipline adventure or experience the best of the rainforest and an aussie bush camp on a guided tour. Walk the well-formed tracks to the Araulen Cascades or Wheel of Fire waterfalls at Finch Hatton Gorge and take a refreshing dip in the freshwater swimming holes.

With a backdrop of clear blue skies and the sparkling Coral Sea, Mackay offers travellers the exciting opportunity of exploring a host of unspoilt tropical islands. Organise a charter boat to get you to Brampton Island, the Newry Island group or Cumberland Islands including Keswick and St Bees, to explore the walking trails, snorkel in waters teeming with coral and marine life, and camp blissfully under the stars in total relaxation.

Mackay has plenty on offer for everyone to enjoy from the breathtaking beauty of Mackay’s natural delights to the thriving City Centre. Be sure to add Mackay to your bucket list today! Nature. Reserved.
