The inaugural Wotif Aussie Town of the Year Awards unearths the ‘must-see’ local towns across the nation in 2018.
Taking out our top spot is Queensland’s Mackay. Hailed as Australia’s sugar capital, this northern gem delivers the charm of a country town with the adventure of a tropical paradise, making it a true blue Aussie holiday. With the Great Barrier Reef at its door, plenty of wallabies and kangaroos to meet at Cape Hillsborough National Park and platypuses to spot in the Eungella National Park, there’s no beauty more rich or rare than that of Queensland’s Mackay!
Check out all of our deserving finalists below and read up on what makes these towns worth a visit on our blog.
