48 hours in Cape Hillsborough and The Hibiscus Coast
For a holiday that will immerse you in all kinds of nature, explore what lies to the north of the sugar cane capital with an overnight escape to Cape Hillsborough. Less than 50 kilometres north of the Mackay city centre, you'll find an ancient volcanic landscape, untouched beaches and 1012 hectares of national park that make up Cape Hillsborough. Whether you're more about action or relaxation, say ‘hello’ to the stunning natural charm of The Hibiscus Coast.
Activities here include exploring a range of walking trails at Cape Hillsborough National Park, learning about the Indigenous Yuibera people and their connection to the land and sea, visiting beachside towns and waking up with kangaroos and wallabies on the beach at sunrise.
