tip Local Tip

When you stay Rydges, you stay local, and there’s nothing quite like a truly local experience.

The sugar capital of Australia, Mackay has a rich agricultural and resources history, as well as being surrounded by pristine rainforests, vast beaches and mountain scapes that will take your breath away.

The gateway to the Whitsundays, the town and surrounds are blessed with some of nature’s finest lakes, trails, flora and fauna which is bound to win the hearts of the nature lovers amongst us.

A stone’s throw from the Hotel, you will find lively dining options, galleries and markets as well as beautiful boutiques that truly support our locals.

Take a cool dip in the Bluewater Lagoon, located on the banks of the Pioneer River and just a short stroll from the Hotel or get up close (and not too personal) with our snappy locals on a crocodile safari in nearby Proserpine.

Our team are on hand to make your trip to Mackay a truly local experience, and we can’t wait to welcome you to our beautiful town!

There are so many things to do near Rydges Mackay Suites, and sitting in the heart of the city, it’s the perfect locale to explore all that the sugarcane capital of Australia has to offer.

Perfectly placed on Wood Street amongst various bars and eateries, Rydges Mackay Suites is within walking distance of numerous local shopping destinations and local attractions, like the marina, Harbour Beach, Bluewater Lagoon, Bluewater Trail and Mackay Aqua Park.

A short drive will take you north to the soft sand and pristine waters of Mackay’s 31 uncrowded beaches. And when you want to venture a little further, our boutique accommodation in Mackay is the gateway to the stunning rainforests of Cape Hillsborough and Eungella National Park, freshwater cascades of Finch Hatton Gorge, dugong sanctuary of Clairview, and a host of breathtaking tropical islands.

From the spectacular sunrise overlooking Wedge Island to indulging in scones at Old Station Teahouse, spotting platypus in Broken River, Pioneer River fishing and snorkelling in the crystal clear waters of Keswick Island’s Basil Bay, our friendly staff will provide you with all the local knowledge.

There is so much to do in the Mackay region, the hardest part is trying to squeeze it all in. And while days can be spent exploring one of Australia’s favourite towns and adventuring across unspoilt tropical islands, through sub-tropical rainforests and over the Great Barrier Reef, guests can unwind of an afternoon and enjoy luxurious nights within the hotel itself.
