Blacks Beach QLD

Blacks Beach

Postcode: 4740

The area’s longest stretch of beach, lined with tropical gardens (about six kilometres), Blacks Beach at Mackay’s Northern Beaches is a great place to watch the Blue Pacific roll in at sunset.

Guests at any one of the beachfront caravan, camping, resort, self contained and motel style accommodation spots dotted along this sandy coastline wake up each morning to the sound of the gentle surf. It is also home to the 2002 Mackay Region Industry and Tourism Award winning restaurant.

Bream and whiting are caught off the beach. A beautiful spot with patrolled beaches and located only 10 to 15 minutes drive from the city centre.
