Looking for a land tour that's different? Want it to be just what you want in the Mackay Finch Hatton Eungella area? Only want to see and do the things that interest you? Then this is the tour for you!
If you want to tour around Mackay city go to Sarina and learn about sugar, walk through Finch Hatton Gorge and Eungella National Forest or perhaps just learn about the platypus and spot one in the wild at Broken River then you can. You are the maker of this adventure tour and you design it for your needs and wants and if that means spending a lot of time at one place or multiple places that can be done.
Perhaps walking trails are your thing so why not design your land tour to mainly feature walks in the rainforest at Finch Hatton Gorge or Broken River both are in Eungella National Park. Or walk around Art Deco buildings and a hand painted history wall in Mackay and take your pic with your special year.
Maybe you would like to learn about sugar so include a trip to Sarina Sugar Shed with taste testing products at the end of the tour and a stop at Dalrymple Bay look out on the way.
You might have something else totally in mind that you want to see and do then its possible, just ask. You can change your mind on the day by adding or removing any part of the tour nothing is impossible or too hard. There is so much you could see and do but that is your choice.
Choose your pick-up time from 7.30am with a coffee to start your day. As a suggestion you could do a mini tour of Mackay then to the Pioneer Valley stopping at Dame Nelly Melba's house. Continue further into the Valley to Finch Hatton Gore walking to Araluen and Wheel of Fire waterfalls.
Lunch is included at either the Church Cafe - a little taste of Italy, Pinnacle Pub for the famous award-winning Pinnacle Pie or Ulysses Café, vegetarian/gluten free option in the Rainforest or perhaps the best burger in Finch Hatton but this depends on what is open on the day - it is not a set menu.
After lunch drive to Eungella for breath taking views from Goodes lookout over the Pioneer Valley then Sky Window for a different perspective. We can visit Hideaway Cafe with its eclectic jewlery, clothing, bric a brac and hand carved walls and doors of the native flora and fauna.
Next stop is Broken River to learn about the platypus and watch them in their natural habitat. You receive a 30 minute platypus education learning all the fun things about them and practical tips on how to spot them so that you can find one to watch and admire while it eats and plays. 98% of people who see a platypus in the wild see them here.
This is just a suggestion as you might want to do something else entirely different and that is fine. You can also add to your experience with Forest Flying through the tree tops 25mt above the ground and stop while on the line to take photos. Or have you chosen something else as an add on? You can even be picked up and do a part of your tour then get dropped off at your accommodation in the Pioneer Valley, Eungella, Broken River and then get picked up to finish your tour and returned to Mackay. If this is something you would like or are considering then just ask.
To make your experince a lasting memory we take pictures throughout the tour and create an album of your own on our Facebook page at no extra cost.
