Mackay, Mackay Area
Slade Point is a short five minute drive from Mackay Harbour, and is one of the few locations in the region where you can enjoy both a stunning sunrise and sublime sunset.
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 Lookout perched above Lamberts Beach provides an excellent vantage point to view the spectacular coastline, including passing whales during migration season.
Ram Chandra Park provides picnic tables and barbecue facilities, overlooking beautiful Slade Bay, for a relaxing beach barbecue dinner.
The beach near McReady's Creek is a favourite haunt for mackerel and reef fish.
