Adjacent to Mackay’s multimillion dollar Reef Marina development, popular Harbour Beach is a favourite beach with locals and visitors alike. Only a five minute drive from Mackay’s Central Business District, it is home to the Mackay Surf Lifesaver Club and is seasonally patrolled.
Harbour Beach is home to one of Mackay’s premium events, the Mackay Harbour Beach Horse Races, combining the thrill of the races with the fun and sun of the beach.
Harbour Beach is located near the Mackay Harbour Breakwater, offering multiple fishing locations. Jew, Mackerel, Trevally, Bream and Tuna are all caught near the harbour waters.
This is also a pet-friendly beach, however dogs are required to remain on their lead during your stay in the area. There are two nearby park areas with playgrounds, shaded picnic tables and barbecue facilities and public toilets.
Delicious dine-in and takeaway meals are also available at the marina precinct.
