Map of the Great Barrier Reef

Mackay, found in the northern coast of Central Queensland, is a spectacular city boasting easy access to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, and a host of its own vibrant attractions.

Despite being the capital of Australia’s thriving sugar industry, it’s still a laid-back city that welcomes many thousands of curious visitors each year. Some tourists are simply passing through on their way up or down the Queensland coast, while others come for a sun-soaked holiday, on the doorstep of the beautiful barrier reef.

Hotels in Mackay are not only plentiful in number, but also come in a vast range of styles and budgets. From the four-star hotels to the road-side motels scattered along the Bruce Highway, the city certainly offers an ample amount of accommodation for visitors.

Most of Mackay’s hotels can be found in the city centre, which overlooks the mouth of the Pioneer River. This area is home to the most expensive hotel properties in the city, and includes both hotels and well-serviced apartments. Guests are close to the main shopping facilities, not to mention a plethora of restaurants and landmarks too.

Head to the suburb of Mackay West, and visitors will find a long list of easy-to-access, roadside motels. Generally, these options do not require pre-booking of rooms, as these inns are designed to cater for motorists looking for a place to rest for the night. Yes, they are inexpensive, but they also provide guests with a variety of convenient amenities, including 24-hour services, private bathrooms and even pool facilities.
