Dolphin Heads

Natural Attractions

A beautiful part of Mackay’s Northern Beaches, Dolphin Heads is a rocky and sandy headland, popular with photography enthusiasts. It can be reached by car within 15 minutes from Mackay’s Central Business District.

The area is thought to have been named after the shape of the headland, which looks similar to the shape of two dolphin heads. The view looks out toward southern Whitsunday islands, including Brampton Island.

At low tide it is possible to walk from Dolphin Heads to neighbouring Eimeo Beach across the tidal creek bed. There is a beachfront resort providing accommodation, dining and function options at Dolphin Heads.
