The Park Mackay – Mackay – Qld

This was our 3rd stay at The Park Mackay. The first time we stayed was when we picked up our new Jayco van in 2016. Returning to the park when having our roof re-sealed a couple of years later.

After 7 years we were back in The Park Mackay while replacing our awning. As you can see from the photos of the awning, that didn’t quite go to plan as the end barrel was the wrong way around. Ultimately, we had to take it back to be fixed.

The Park Mackay

Having stayed previously, we knew it was a nice friendly caravan park. With the added bonus that it’s in close proximity to Jayco Mackay. The closest however, by a smidge, is “My Cow” caravan park (an unusual name I know). We have also stayed there a couple of times.

As I wanted to make sure we had a spot at The Park Mackay, I booked a few days earlier. They gave me a choice between a drive through site and a back in site. The back in site was cheaper so we chose that. On our first stay we chose a drive through site as it was our first parking of a caravan.

Arriving at reception, I said “hi” to a lady who had stayed at our previous low cost camp at Nebo. Then again at the dump point on route. It’s a big country small world!

Sites at The Park Mackay are lovely green grass. Having spent the last few months on a mainly dry sheep station in Bourke NSW for Larry’s work, this was refreshing to say the least.

The Park Mackay has powered and un-powered sites. And as with most city caravan parks the sites are a certain size. Not to say they are small as they are not! We fit our 21ft van and ute it fine. Big rigs I think park over the back where there seems to be heaps of room. Where as most seem to be in the main camp area.

The Park Mackay Amenities

Toilets and showers are in easy reach of every site and they have a laundry and large washing line. They do have a dump point if you like to use your own facilities.

Have A Drive

The Park Mackay is a great place to base yourself while you have a drive around the area. Here are a few Ideas:

  • Eungella National Park & Finch Hatton Gorge – Go walking in the subtropical rainforest and cool down by the waterfalls. You might spot a platypus. We got engaged there and highly recommend a visit.
  • Shopping – We aren’t big shoppers, but having been back O’Bourke for a few months it’s nice visit Bunnings. Also, it was time to get a few bits of clothes for the warmer weather. Head to the large Caneland Central for all your shopping needs.
  • Beaches – Visit the many beaches in the area like Cape Hillsbourough and Blacks Beach
