Ball Bay is on the Hibiscus Coast, a relatively small stretch of coast to the north of Mackay is an area of relatively isolated beaches backed by fertile sugar fields and unique mountain formations. It’s a 93 kilometre stretch of remarkably diverse landscapes that run from Farleigh (20 km north of Mackay) to the cordial coastal town of Midge Point. One of the main attractions along this route is the spectacular 816 hectare National Park of Cape Hillsborough.

Nestled into the coastline where the rainforest meets the ocean, this area is well-known for the wallabies that come down to the long sandy beaches each morning at sunrise, its wonderful short walks, whale watching from either Twin Beach or Turtle Lookout, and its rugged coastline.
