The central Queensland city can be found on the coast, looking out upon the Coral Sea and the Great Barrier Reef.

Travelling west, guests at the Mackay Resort Motel are able to follow the Pioneer River and its valley, which is surrounded by fields and fields of sugar, which is the regions major production. A little further (perhaps 30 kilometres) lies the Eungella National Park, another worthy destination for the regions visitors.
