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. Welcome to Mackay region.
Inviting turquoise waters, sparkling white-sand beaches and dancing palm trees kissed by a gentle sea breeze. Who wouldn’t swoon over living amongst a tropical milieu?
Relaxation is effortless. Go for a run along one of the palm-lined beaches as the sun sets behind the ocean. Have a BBQ dinner under the stars, then let the rolling waves lull you to a peaceful sleep.
This is the Northern Beaches.
Black’s Beach stretches 6km, with golden sand and lush tropical parkland. Walking tracks can be found under the shade of the vegetation, or slip off the shoes and bury your toes in the soft sand.
The long golden beach has a northerly aspect, providing shelter from the wind. With views of Dolphin Heads and the northernmost Cumberland Islands, this is absolutely stunning.
Dive into the pristine Coral Sea with the comfort of knowing that the Eimeo Surf Lifesaving Club are patrolling the sparkling water. Overlooking the picturesque beach, the Eimeo Pub is a local landmark, perched on the hill. Have lunch with a million dollar view, and enjoy some of the freshest fish available.
Take a stroll through Mango Avenue, a row of 80 year old mango trees that have formed a shady canopy, forming a focal point of Eimeo Village.
Shoal Point Beach offers magnificent views north to Cape Hillsborough and the Hibiscus Coast.
