Hay Point

Hay Point is located approximately 40 kilometres south of Mackay, and is best-known for hosting one of the largest coal-loading facilities in the world at the Port of Hay Point.

The Port Administration building features a public viewing gallery offering fantastic views of the two coal terminals. The lookout is signposted from Hay Point Road.

From the viewing area you will see two separate coal terminals - the Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal and the Hay Point Services Coal Terminal.

The breakwater Esplanade at Hay Point is a great land-based fishing location.

Salonika Beach is a tropical haven for visitors to Hay Point. The 2 kilometre stretch of sandy beach is ideal for swimming and relaxation. Gaze out toward Victor Island, only 1 kilometre offshore. The natural preservation of the area means wildlife experiences are easy to come by, with black cockatoos, sea eagles and bush turkeys often seen. Nearby wetlands provide unique bird-watching opportunities.
