About the neighbourhood
Double carport available for parking that boat and car/caravan etc. Ball Bay is situated just north of Mackay with a beautiful unspoilt beach. The area has approximately 100 houses and is nestled between the popular tourist area of Cape Hillsborough and Haliday Bay which offers a beachfront golfcourse and resort. Airlie Beach is approximately one hour north by car. Local Bowls club with meals available at Seaforth as well as tennis courts, BMX track, general store and service station. Fishing off the beach or in your boat, golfing and bowls nearby if that is your interest or just lazing on the front deck with a good book. Our family of Curlews usually arrive each morning, as do the whistler ducks seeking food offerings so 'Just relax' at the beachouse.
Getting around
Hire vehicles are available from Mackay airport if arriving by plane as a vehicle is necessary to get to the Hibiscus Coast which is where Ball Bay is located (approximately 45km from Mackay, see driving instructions)
