    If you're on reigião, do not miss the opportunity to visit this beautiful National Park. There's several trails that can be travelled and incredible views to be adimiradas. One of the biggest attractions is admire the kangaroos and wallabies in nature-can be seen on the beach during the morning.

    STUNNING beaches. Beautiful to walk along. So much to explore. The island to explore at low tide was beautiful. Even saw a sea turtle! Good fishing. My man was very happy to relax and fish all day. Th...  more »

    Drove from our Airbnb in Mackay to see the kangaroos & wallabies at sunrise. Very beautiful watching them scratch their morning feed (of sand dollars, mangrove seeds, & seaweed) out of the sand. Definitely get there at first light because soon after sunrise they hop away. Gorgeous beach and watching the sun rise over the sea was also spectacular.

    Nice location, great photo opportunities, with a couple of nice walking trails.

    Very annoyed and disappointed. After visiting this place over 20 times in 10 years, we left one morning very early after staying in a cabin. There was nowhere to leave the key out of hours, so we rang at 8 am and told them we had to leave and would mail the key back to them. We put the key in Australia Post the next day and for whatever reason Australia post took some 10 days to get it back to them. During the 7-10 days an older lady threatened me with police action, even though we had mailed the key back. After some 20 stays, I wanted to book another cabin and was told I am now blacklisted but they don't know why. I am presuming that it is the issue with the key but if they had somewhere to leave the key this wouldn't have happened at all. It's a nice place but customer service? Doesn't exist.

    Absolutely love this place. Best beach in the Mackay region.

    Best spot to see kangaroos at the beach. But you have to be there before sunrise. At sunrise the kangaroos jump back into the forest. The beach itself is very nice and good for having a breakfast after kangaroo watching.
