Overview

About the property

The Shores Holiday Apartments Beachfront Villas are spacious, 2 bedroom lowset units located close to the beach foreshore. They are fully self contained and fully air conditioned, with free cable television, free WiFi, DVD players, ipod docking stations, and dishwashers in the kitchen. They all have modern bathrooms with walk in shower and a separate toilet.

The property is located 5 minutes drive from Northern Beaches Central Shopping Centre, Mackay Golf Club, Northern Beaches Bowls Club, and the iconic Eimeo Hotel.

A Hairdresser, Fish and Chip Takeaway Shop, Beauty Day Spa, Chinese Restaurant and Mini Supermarket are a five minute walk from The Shores Holiday Apartments. The local Tavern is a 10 minute walk.

The apartments are nestled within a lush tropical garden fronting onto 6 kms of flat sandy beach - ideal for jogging, fishing or a leisurely walk. Between the apartments and the beach is the large recreational area with all our outdoor facilities, including a full size flood lit tennis court, volleyball net, 2 swimming pools, a toddlers pool & spa pool, and a BBQ shelter complete with 2 electric BBQ's as well as a wood burning BBQ.

Seasonal wildlife activities observed from The Shores Holiday Apartments include Whale Watching, Turtle Nesting and Hatching, Goanna Spotting and Migratory Shore Birds. Sorry pets are not permitted.

The office has fax and photocopying facilities, and can book tours as well.

The unique style of accommodation at The Shores satisfies the needs of holidaymakers, business travellers, sporting groups, family reunions, and those looking for temporary accommodation when relocating permanently to Mackay.

Blacks Beach is a beautiful piece of coastline and an ideal spot to relax. The beach has awe inspiring views of the Pacific Ocean, at the same time being secluded and quiet. It's also a photographers paradise for brilliant sunrises.The 6 kilometre coast line is flat and makes it very easy to walk, jog, play or just lie on the beach in between swims. The more enthusiastic go kite surfing. Fishing is also a great escape and at Blacks Beach, Bream and Whiting can be caught off the beach.

The Eimeo Hotel set high on a cliff is worth a visit for the spectacular views out to the islands. Just breathtaking.Sunsets are also awesome from the Eimeo Hotel.

The Pioneer Valley marks the gateway to one of Queensland's most spectacular wilderness areas with Eungella National Park, the longest and oldest stretch of subtropical rainforest in Australia. Their are numerous walks to choose from throughout the park. Broken River near Eungella is the ideal place to view the shy platypus or head for fresh water swimming holes at Finch Hatton Gorge. Many animals and plant species found here are unique - they are found literally nowhere else in the world.

Cape Hillshorough National Park offers you the chance to see possums and native birds, kangaroos wallabies and bush turkeys on the beach, and take in some great walks through the 816 hectare national park.

Mackay City offers everything you could want from a bustling regional centre. Check out the Canefire sculpture, creative street art and Art Deco historic buildings. For shopping try the City Centre, Canelands, or Mt Pleasant for a huge variety of shops. The Pioneer River flows past the city's historical buildings and rows of palm trees fringe the wide streets. The River Walk is a must as is the Blue Water Lagoon.

Hay Point & Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminals are worth the drive. The viewing platform over the site gives visitors a first hand impression of the mining industry and its impact on our region. An educational experience.

From Blacks Beach you can head north to the Great Barrier Reef and the Whitsunday Islands.The Shores Holiday Apartments are located on the beach in Mackays Northern Beaches, just 15 kms north of Mackay's City Centre.

The Shores Holiday Apartments is a great base to explore our region. Nature Reserved.

The Managers Craig and Denise were fabulous. Very friendly and full of local knowledge.

Very happy to replace our broken can opener and supply us with extra blankets for my 88 year old grandmother who was staying with myself and my sister. Easy access into the Beach Villa for my grandmother (who uses a walker).

Very peaceful and lovely surrounds and only 2 mins walk down to the beach.

Very relaxing and quiet - lovely to listen to the loads of butcher birds and magpies warbling.

We would definitely come back for another stay.
