With hot summers and warm sunny winters, the Great Barrier Reef just offshore, and the beautiful Eungella National Park to the north-west, Mackay combines enviable paradise conditions with country charm and a laid-back lifestyle, which you can enjoy when you book a DISCOVER AUSTRALIA Mackay Flight Package. There is a great range of flight and accommodation packages available online- and the special discounted rates means that you get to spend more on your holiday, not on flights and accommodation.
History buffs who have booked a DISCOVER AUSTRALIA Mackay Flight Package will enjoy visiting the many historical buildings in the town centre. A very strong art-deco theme abounds, mostly due to the fact that town was almost completely destroyed in a devastating cyclone in 1918, and re-built according to the current style. Visitors with convenient central Mackay accommodation can also visit Artspace Mackay, a modern museum and art gallery which forms part of the Queensland Heritage Trails Network. Learn about Mackay's interesting history, and see the international and local art exhibitions.
You wont go hungry on your Mackay holiday- enjoy a relaxed waterside meal, fresh seafood delicacies, rainforest retreat dining or delicious fresh tropical fruit. Book a Mackay Flight Package with central accommodation, and wander down to the marina- there are great alfresco dining options here, as well as along the palm-lined city sidewalks. A range of international cuisine is at your fingertips, however if you prefer to cook up your own feasts, check out the range of self-contained accommodation available with a DISCOVER AUSTRALIA Mackay flight and accommodation package, and enjoy the freedom of self-catering. If you are looking for some evening entertainment after dinner, check out what's on at the Mackay Entertainment Convention Centre, which regularly hosts a wide range of theatre, dance, drama, and music events.
Bushwalkers and nature-lovers alike will enjoy visiting the nearby Eungella National Park, which is home to some truly unusual plants and animals. Lucky visitors who have booked a Mackay flight package with convenient central accommodation will have the opportunity to spot the shy platypus that live in Eungella National Park's Broken River. The waterfalls, swimming holes and walking tracks of the Finch Hatton Gorge section of the park are not to be missed. Closer to town, and close-by to many Mackay accommodation options bookable with a DISCOVER AUSTRALIA flight package, the Regional Botanic Gardens on Lagoon St feature beautiful landscaped gardens, and plants native to the Mackay coastal region. Mackay is blessed with a number of great beaches, many of which are only a short drive from the city centre. Illawong, Far and Town Beaches are the closest to the city centre, and perfect for romantic walks and evening fishing adventures, and are also the best place to witness the Mackay region's amazingly long tides. Browse through DISCOVER AUSTRALIA'S easy-to-compare, easy-to-book Mackay Flight Packages, and choose one in the style and location of accommodation you desire. Everyone from couples on a romantic retreat through to families enjoying a fun vacation will fall in love with Mackays friendly, laid back attitude. If surfing is more your thing, head over to Lamberts Beach, which also provides great sea views out to the Cumberland Islands.
Only 32km offshore of Mackay, Brampton Island is one of Queensland's most beautiful islands, and favourite holiday destinations. As well as pristine beaches and beautiful rainforests, it is home to populations of turtles who nest upon the shore annually, and Humpback whales, who frolic in the shallow waters nearby. Whilst Brampton Island is not available to visit on a day trip, you may wish to complement your DISCOVER AUSTRALIA Mackay flight and accommodation package with a separate booking on this exclusive island. DISCOVER AUSTRALIA can take you there- simply browse online and start planning.
