Other facilities include a bowls club, public swimming enclosure, nearby public toilets, and a well maintained caravan and camping area located directly on the beach.

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.
