Shoal Point

Shoal Point, Mackay Area

Free Entry 

Shoal Point is the northern-most community of the Northern Beaches group, with a visually spectacular coastal beach. At low tide, the beach can almost be mistaken as a small sweeping desert. The sand stretches for hundreds of metres, allowing a close-up view of Green Reef Island.

Watch as thousands of tiny blue Soldier Crabs scuttle along the mud flats, burying themselves into the sand. The 'lone tree' found toward the northern end of the beach is one of Mackay's most 'instagrammable' images.

Take a blanket, choose a spot to dig your toes into the sand and watch a sublime sunset.

Boats can be launched straight off the beach.

An esplanade park provides shade, picnic tables, a playground and barbecues as well as picturesque views of the beach.

Open Times

Note: Shoal Point Beach is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
