Eimeo

Eimeo is one of Mackay's seaside suburbs, one which has got it all together. So much so, that the surf club, the sailboard club, the catamaran club have all amalgamated. Members of the club provide a seasonal beach patrol which makes for safer use of the waters of the Coral Sea and the beach is regularly patrolled by the Department of Primary Industries who are responsible for a shark netting program.

At Eimeo, the publican of the Pacific Hotel scored the best piece of real estate. Better known as The Eimeo Pub, patrons have the best views in town, with expansive views over the ocean and nearby islands. Massive views, and massive tides! The beaches here have a 6 meter tide, which means that it's possible walk out for about a kilometre when the tide is out.

Do not get caught when the tide changes, otherwise you could miss out on the monthly markets which are organised by the surf-sailboard-catamaran club.
