Camping near Mackay with wifi provided guide

Overview

Mackay is best known for producing one-third of Australia’s sugar crop, but aside from the sweets, the area features plenty of natural attractions with access to the Great Barrier Reef and inland national parks. Leave the city centre’s Art Deco buildings and Bluewater Quay waterfront behind and venture out to area island national parks—Brampton, Newry, Smith, and South Cumberland are all within easy reach, while Cape Hillsborough and Eungella are best for wildlife.

When to go

The cooler months of April to September are the best times to visit, as summer daytime temperatures can hit 35°C (95°F) and higher. Daytime temperatures and humidity can be high at any time of the year, while nights are generally cool. The area sometimes draws cyclones between November and April.

Know before you go

  • Do not feed agile wallabies or any other native animals on Cape Hillsborough Beach. Human food can make them sick, and they can also become aggressive if fed.
  • Take extreme care around waterfalls and fast-flowing streams, especially around Finch Hatton Gorge. Fatal accidents and serious injuries have occurred on slippery rocks and steep slopes.
  • Mackay offers a number of spots where you can stock up on supplies, in addition to a post office, pharmacy, visitor information centre, bank, and car hire companies.
  • Camping permits are required for all Queensland parks, forests, and reserves and must be booked online and paid for before arrival. Make camping bookings as early as possible, especially for around Christmas.
