Mackay

Nature and Wildlife

Splash into a mountain stream, search for a mantaray or trek through the bush with Mackay’s range of natural beauties spanning the rainforests to the reefs.

Plunge into the depths of the Great Barrier Reef and swim with the fishes or catch one in a creek for dinner. Enjoy the tranquillity of the woodlands with a camping trip to Newry Island National Park or soak up nature’s past with a hike through the ancient rainforests. Follow the birds in Dysart or find bright galahs and lorikeets in Blue Mountain Park. Take a leisurely bike ride through Bluewater trail and admire the botanical gardens before stopping to cool down at Bluewater Lagoon.
