Pacific Esplanade, Mackay 4740
Slade Point is a short five-minute drive from Mackay Harbour and is one of the few locations in the region where you can enjoy both a stunning sunrise and sublime sunset.
Slade Point Reserve lies at Lamberts Beach, stretching 73 hectares and conserving one of the Mackay region’s last remaining areas of coastal dunes and paperbark wetlands. Visitors can walk through the reserve.
Lamberts Lookout perched above Lamberts Beach provides an excellent vantage point to view the spectacular coastline, including passing whales during migration season. In addition, Slade Point’s Water Tower was recently painted in a whale theme and is now a popular spot for photography.
Ram Chandra Park provides picnic tables and barbecue facilities overlooking beautiful Slade Bay for a relaxing beach barbecue dinner.
Purchase some fish and chips and head up to the Slade Point Lookout to enjoy an afternoon of whale watching.
