Hibiscus Coast

The Hibiscus Coast guarantees wildlife encounters on the uncrowded beaches of Seaforth, Halliday Bay, Ball Bay and Cape Hillsborough, starting 20 kilometres north of Mackay.

Nature spotting

  • Rise early to watch families of wallabies and kangaroos take to the the beach at sunrise within the Cape Hillsborough National Park or enjoy a moonlight stroll, along with thousands of scurrying crabs.
  • Camp under the eucalypt trees at Smalleys Beach and explore the 1.2 kilometre Diversity Boardwalk, spotting the blue Ulysses butterfly through woodlands and mangrove swamps. 

Walk. Swim. Play.

  • Walk from Dolphin Heads to nearby Eimeo Beach at low tide or enjoy a beer from the deck of a grand pub with panoramic views over the Great Barrier Reef and nearby Islands. 
  • Swim within the protected enclosures along the Hibiscus Coast, fish straight off the beach at Ball Bay or tee off from the greens at Halliday Bay.
