Tropical islands with white sandy beaches stretching off into the distance, lush rainforests teeming with species of wildlife not found anywhere else in the world, and friendly locals who are happy to show you all the good fishing spots: The Mackay and Whitsunday area really is the ultimate holiday destination.
Use The Feathered Nest as a base to discover the wonders of the region—there is something to cater for every interest including tranquil lagoons and wetlands, beautiful islands, amazing fishing and vibrant communities.
Mackay is a short 30 minute drive to the south. Eat at one of the wonderful restaurants or cafes before wandering through some of its galleries, museums or heritage sites. If you head north to Airlie Beach you have easy access to the world-famous Whitsunday islands. Go for a dive on the Great Barrier Reef or simply stroll along the pristine beaches.
