Holiday Travel Video Guide For Mackay, Queensland Australia

Mackay – Queensland Australia – Travel Video Guide

Mackay is a city in Queensland, on Australia’s east coast. Off the coast is a section of the Great Barrier Reef. Closer to shore are the islands of St. Bees, with reefs, rainforest and koalas, and Keswick, rich in marine life. Mackay itself is known for its Harbour Beach, marina and Bluewater Lagoon, a city water park. Inland from Mackay, Eungella National Park is a habitat for rare frogs and platypus.

We stopped in to check out some of the great natural experiences that can be enjoyed in Mackay and its surrounds. We started with a trip to Cape Hillsborough where we spotted a couple of Kangaroos on the beach. Pretty amazing stuff!

We then headed into the Eungella national park to check out some of their rainforest walks. After we explored these magnificent forests we decided to head down to a locals hot spot Finch Hatton Gorge for a nice refreshing swim!

We hope you enjoyed this video about Mackay in Queensland Australia.
