The coast is the star in Queensland, and when you stay at hotels in Mackay you'll never be far away from gorgeous, sandy beaches. Local highlights include Illawong Beach Resort, which offers affordable accommodation and easy access to fantastic fishing areas. But the Town Beach is almost as appealing. Located ten minutes' walk from the CBD, the beach offers incredible sunrise views and becomes a massive expanse of sand at low tide - ideal for beach cricket. Away from the beach, Mackay has plenty to offer, including:

  • The chance to fish some of Australia's most fertile fishing grounds
  • Clermont Old Town, which dates back to the 1860s gold rush
  • The home of famous opera singer Dame Nellie Melba
  • Places to buy souvenirs like Sarina Art and Craft Centre
The area around town is also full of incredible natural attractions. When you take flights to Mackay, you could hike in the Pioneer Valley or Blue Mountain Park. You can take cruises to beautiful locations like Keswick Island, where secluded beaches like Basil Bay are wonderful places to unwind. There's birdwatching at Dysart, dugongs playing in the water at Clairview and even platypuses horsing around at Broken River. Whether you adore watching animals at play, or relaxing in places of astonishing natural beauty, cheap flights to Mackay will be for you.

Mackay is also at the heart of a fascinating region. When you rent a car in Mackay, you can easily drive to deserted old gold mining towns like Mount Britton or head to vineyards in the Walla Walla Valley.
