Sites & some cabins
In and around Mackay Holiday & Caravan Park
If local, fresh food is what you’re after in a holiday, then the Greater Whitsundays Farmers’ Market is for you. Located at Bluewater Quay, the markets are just a 5min drive from our park and are held weekly on Wednesday mornings (6:30-10:30am). Taste your way through the delicious fruit & veg, try some locally sourced sugar cane juice or even treat yourself to a bunch of flowers! Once you’re done be sure to make the most of your day and explore the waterfront precinct nearby.
Nestled just 45mins away from our park is Cape Hillsborough National Park. Known as one of the most striking places on the Central Queensland Coast, Cape Hillsborough is filled with life, from the rainforest to the beaches, and everywhere in between. Hike the walking tracks and stop for a picnic at lunch or be sure to pack your camera and head to the beach at sunrise or sunset to meet a wallaby on the sand! This is one iconic Aussie destination you don’t want to miss.
If lounging on the sand is your kind of holiday, Harbour Beach is a must-visit. It’s adjacent to the Marine Reef development and is a favourite amongst tourists and locals. The beach is seasonally patrolled and includes a pet-friendly area but be sure to keep your pooch on a leash. Grab some fish and chips, and sit by the water or make the most of the shaded picnic tables nearby.
Are you ready to feel a world away? Jump in the car and head 90mins inland! Eungella National Park is a speccy, forest-clad mountain refuge that is filled to the brim with diverse plants and wildlife. From incredible waterfalls to native animals like the Eungella dayfrog, Eungella spiny cray, and the ever-elusive Platypus, you will not be disappointed. Put your walking shoes on and take the time to explore this wonderous forest that borders on tropical and sub-tropical, making it the perfect home for an array of vegetation. Be sure to pack your binoculars for ultimate viewing!
