Beaches around Mackay

Harbour Beach

A ten minute drive north of Mackay and adjacent to the Reef Marina development. Harbour Beach is patrolled and is a favourite with locals — offering the ideal spot for picnics, fishing and swimming. The Harbour Beach area is renowned with locals for good jew, mackerel, trevally, bream and tuna fishing.

Hibiscus Coast

Further up the coast are the Seaforth and Halliday Beaches. Both are largely untouched beaches that are very popular with tourist and locals for their picnic and barbecue areas, dotted along the foreshore. They’re located 50 kilometres north of Mackay and have facilities nearby.

Lake Barfield

Strictly speaking, not the beach, but it is a body of water. Lake Barfield is located between the bustling beach communities of Half Tide and Salonika Beach. It is a splendid example of a manmade lake that provides quiet and peaceful waters for a variety of fish, bird and animal life. Birding fans will adore this location as it is now a bird-sanctuary and home to black swans, wondrous white herons and  egrets. An ideal spot for a picnic. Pack your togs and binoculars.

Eimeo Beach and Sunset Bay

Eimeo Beach and Sunset Bay are popular beaches with locals and also lure the keen anglers. The beach is patrolled over the summer. Also home to the Eimeo Pacific Hotel. This pub is popular among locals and tourists alike who enjoy a ‘counter lunch with a million dollar view’. The pub’s enviable position has a splendid view over Eimeo Beach and Sunset Bay. Eimeo Beach is also home to the surf club, the sailboard club, the catamaran club which have all been quite conveniently amalgamated.

Lamberts Beach

Lamberts Beach has it’s moments as a surf beach when a big south-easterly front kicks in. Works best each side of low tide.
