First on your long list of to-dos is to get a vehicle from Wotif’s Mackay car hire options. Next, take a drive to Eungella National Park and spend the day on some of Australia’s most impressive hiking trails. There’s two major waterfalls within the park that you must visit. Take a nice bushwalk to either Araluen or Wheel of Fire Falls—or both! If you get hot, just cool off with a dip in the pools below. One of the most popular attractions in the park is the viewpoint over the Broken River. The flowing water is home to a huge population of platypuses, the beaver-looking creatures with webbed feet and a duck bill.
No holiday in Mackay is complete without a visit to the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest coral reef system. The reef is only a few kilometres offshore, so book a spot on a dive tour and you’ll have one of the greatest experiences of your life. The crystal clear water makes spotting creatures like the giant clam, blue starfish and green sea turtles easy as pie. That’s a few of the animals you’ll encounter, but if we listed all of them, you wouldn’t be done reading until next week.
After returning from the deep it’s time to spend, baby. The money you saved on our cheap Mackay packages should be spent at Mount Pleasant Greenfields, one of the city’s two major shopping centres. Or you can go to the other big mall of Caneland Central and drop dollars at big-name stores.
We hope you’re hungry for seafood on your Mackay holiday, because this town is loaded with it. Head down to the Marina Village and order up a slipper lobster, more commonly known as a bay lobster. Get it fried, grilled, battered or in a sushi roll—really, whatever you want. If you’re not a fish person, worry not, young padawan; there’s plenty of other options like Italian and Thai food.
Finally, when the sun says goodbye for the night, it’s time to cheers to your fantastic holiday. If you eat in the Marina Village, you won’t have to go far to find a suitable watering hole. There’s also a place just to the north of town perched on a sea cliff that’s perfect for toasting to the sunset.
The state of Queensland dominates the eastern coast of “Oz”, and we think you need to go there immediately. Browse our splendid offers on Mackay holiday packages now and let your boss know you’ll be back to work in a week.
