Illawong Beach

Mackay, Mackay Area

A serene and peaceful coastline awaits at Illawong Beach.

Kilometres of sandy shoreline as well as off and on dog leash areas make Illawong Beach a popular choice for sunrise strolls. At low tide, the ripples in the sand stretch for kilometres, where small blue soldier crabs can be seen scuttling across the surface.

Avid fishermen cast from the beach or into the mangrove-lined creeks, a popular local fishing spot. Windsurfers can often be seen at this beach, with the view of nearby islands and the Hay Point Coal Terminal in the distance.

Illawong Beach is home to Quota Park, with public facilities including toilets, barbecues, picnic tables and a playground. There is also public fitness equipment at Quota Park for those looking for variety to their workout.

A colourful flower garden at Quota Park is often home to many colourful butterflies.

A nearby oceanside resort offers accommodation and dining options.
