Australia Things to Do: 1,336 reviews and 2,265 photos
Cape Hillsborough is one of the smallest Australian National Parks, and rather off the beaten track. Nevertheless you should visit this terrific place.
There is a small hike through bushland and forest, and a marvelous rock-strewn beach where at dusk and dawn, kangaroos sometimes come out on the beach. The visitors centre has a nice cafe with delicious food and a store.
Cape Hillsborough is off the Bruce Highway north of Mackay. Take the Seaforth Road 20km north of Mackay and continue 20km to the Cape Hillsborough turnoff then a further 10km to the park. (The gravel road to Smalleys Beach is signposted about 6km east of the Seaforth turnoff.) From the north, turn off the highway 79km south of Proserpine and drive 15km towards Seaforth. Turn right then left and drive another 10km to the park.
