Mackay, Mackay Area
Lamberts Beach is seasonally patrolled and the lookout offers fabulous sea views out to the Cumberland Islands. It's also a popular spot for surfers when the swell is right, and a great whale watching platform during the winter months. Shady areas, picnic tables, play equipment and barbecues are all available at Lamberts Beach. Slade Point Reserve lies at Lamberts Beach stretching 73 hectares and conserving one of the last remaining areas of coastal dunes and paperbark wetlands in the Mackay region. Visitors can walk through the reserve.
Lamberts Beach and Slade Point, on the other side of McReady's Creek are often favourite haunts for mackerel and reef fish.
There is also a hotel at Slade Point for accommodation.
