From the Pioneer Valley, one of the most picturesque valleys in the world, to the charming heritage towns in the Isaac area or the Keswick Island with a tropical oasis just off the coast; from beach-lounging wallabies at Cape Hillsborough National Park, to shy-but-oh-so-cute platypus in Eungella National Park, don’t miss those sites and experiences in the Mackay Region.

You can have a nice and sweet afternoon with a cup of coffee and enjoy buildings with artistic decoration and the palm-tree lined streets that makes up the city heart of Mackay. Or you can slip on your deck shoes and settle in for an afternoon of tapas and cocktails on the water at the Mackay Marina. You can even walk or ride along the Bluewater Trail and past the Pioneer River, Botanic Gardens, free man-made swimming lagoon and fishing platforms.
