A five to ten minute drive north of the city centre and adjacent to the multi-million dollar Reef Marina development, this popular beach is patrolled and is a favourite with locals - offering the ideal spot for picnics, fishing and swimming. The Harbour Beach area is renowned with locals for good jew, mackerel, trevally, bream and tuna fishing.
Also nearby the Harbour is Mulherin Park, a shady retreat with barbecues, picnic tables, public toilets and children's play area.
It is also home to the new Mackay Surf Life Club and the even newer Mackay Yacht Club. Enjoy lunch overlooking the beach and tropical off shore islands.
