The Mackay region offers a number of beautiful beaches up and down the coastline, elusive wildlife and rural communities. At the heart of the region is Mackay city, a vibrant city with lovely Art Deco buildings and streets lined with palm trees. Mackay Marina Village is a popular spot for eating out and it is also home to a number of quality Mackay hotels.

The surrounding areas are perfect for holidaying far from crowds.

Eungella National Park is a must-see attraction, as it boasts the longest area of sub-tropical rainforest in the country. It is situated just one hour away from Mackay and day tours are possible.

Mackay accommodation is diverse, ranging from modest guesthouses to luxurious beachside hotel complexes and the choice is constantly increasing, as more establishments open.

Located just off the coast of Mackay at the end of the Whitsunday passage, is beautiful Brampton Island. The ferry service linking Brampton to Mackay takes approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.
