Mackay's Northern Beaches
If sun, sand and sensational ocean views are what you crave for in a holiday, Mackay’s Northern Beaches offer the ambience of a tropical retreat whilst only being 20 minutes from Mackay’s CBD. A luxurious haven for that special summer adventure, tropical winter retreat, or private romantic celebration.
Did you know? Black’s Beach is the longest beach in the Mackay region, its golden sand stretching 6km in length.
Eimeo Beach, (pronounced I-me-o), is a popular retreat for locals. Nestled in Sunset Bay, the beach is seasonally patrolled by volunteer lifesavers. A must-see is 80-year old Mango Avenue. This heritage-listed attraction stretches between Whittles Lane and Heidke Street, forming a shaded canopy above the streetscape. Bucasia Beach is an ideal spot for a picnic, or game of beach cricket.
Seaview Park on the Bucasia Esplanade provides public facilities for a memorable day at the beach, including a BBQ, shower, toilets, picnic tables and children’s playground.
View incredible scenery toward Cape Hillsborough from the sparkling water of Shoal Point. The shallow water and nearby islands make it the perfect place to launch a small boat and enjoy a stellar day on the water.
There are a number of shopping centres in the Northern Beaches providing all the conveniences if you are self-catering. Otherwise, choose to dine or order food to go at one of the many pubs, restaurants or cafes in this area, serving delicious cuisines often with a poolside or beachfront setting.
With a host of beachside accommodation available, the beach is only a few steps away. Most offer spacious, self-contained accommodation perched near the ocean, with BBQ areas, pools and private sun lounges available for guests to enjoy.
