Approximately an hour west of Mackay, the township of Eungella boasts a unique environment. Where else can you see Platypus in the wild, choose from 25kms of bush walking tracks in sub-tropical rainforest and experience great food and accommodation with mountain top views?
Eungella is the perfect destination for a day trip or extended relaxing stay.
A drive from Mackay to Eungella takes approximately 1 hour.
The usual approach to Eungella from Mackay is along the scenic Pioneer Valley following the Mackay-Eungella Road.
When travelling south from Proserpine it is not essential to go all the way to Mackay. It is possible to leave the Bruce Highway to meet the Mackay-Eungella Road at Marian, Mirani or Gargett townships.
When travelling north from Sarina however, it is quicker and easier to go through Mackay. If driving the Peak Downs Highway, it is best to cut across from Eton to Marian.
