Holidays in Mackay

Often, it's the people of a city that make it buzz. In this part of Whitsundays, there's 74,000 of them.

Queensland's capital, Brisbane, lies 800 kilometres away from Mackay, while Sandiford lies 15 kilometres away.

Create some life-long memories that every family member will remember fondly at Mackay Leisure Centre.

Botany experts and novices alike will be glad to learn about this region's extensive plant collections. For a blossom-filled day, start with a wander around the impressive beds at the Mackay Regional Botanic Gardens. After that, head over to the Queens Park Orchid House, where the vast array of species alone is sure to knock your socks off. If you just can't get enough, the floral exhibits at the Mackay Regional Botanical Gardens and Orchid Display House are also rather nice.

Simply being close to greenery can make you healthier and happier, so enjoy some time out at Mackay's green, grassy spaces, such as Jubilee Park and Blacks Beach Park.

Glorious sea views aren't the only things you can look forward to at Lamberts Beach. Keep your eyes peeled for squabbling seabirds as well as little creatures like sand crabs and clams.

If you're searching for some time out and a breath of clean air, you should make the trip to Bluewater Lagoon or Cape Hillsborough National Park. You aren't going to want to miss Newry Islands National Park either. The natural surrounds here are sure to impress.

Feel a frisson of inspiration as your eyes roam around the colourful artworks at the Artspace Mackay.

Take an eye-opening journey into yesteryear at the Sarina Museum and the Greenmount Homestead. Both exhibitions pride themselves on making the city's rich history entertaining and relevant to audiences.

You'll enjoy a glimpse into Mackay's history when you spend time at the Sarina Tourist Art & Craft Centre.

If ever there was a shopper's paradise, Mackay would make the cut. With a good assortment of shopping plazas to select from, you'd do best to start with Hibiscus Shopping Centre and Caneland Central. If you manage to browse all of that without burning too many holes through your pocket, also check out Northern Beaches Central Shopping Centre and Mount Pleasant Shopping Centre.

If you fancy some golf, grab your clubs and organise a tee time at the Black Springs Golf Club and the Sarina Golf Course.

While you are here, why not wander around some attractions that are not on the tourist maps? You're not likely to have to fight for space with too many fellow travellers at Harrup Park. You could also visit Mackay Marina Village & Shipyard.
