Mackay is known for fantastic adventure tourism and adrenalin pumping adventures - that’s because this natural playground is filled from north to south coast with wilderness and hundreds opportunities for heart-pumping fun.
People soar on engineered wings of fabric and cable while beneath, others dive through the undergrowth on mountain bikes, splashing through shallow creeks. Creeks that lead to rivers upon which kayakers explore. Downstream the rivers open up to the sea.
People are launching themselves from cliff faces into the churning waters below with glee and/or terror on their face as yachts ride the unrelenting wind further out to sea. They cut through white-capped waves as the crew launch their weight to counterbalance, sea spray stinging determined faces.
