Cape Hillsborough Nature Tourist Park

This little slice of heaven in Queensland’s phenomenal central coast is the perfect spot to detach from reality and return to nature.

Situated in the National Park and surrounded by absolute beach frontage this Mackay tourist park offers the best of both worlds.

Taking a sustainable approach to running the park, Cape Hillsborough offers:

  • Provision of low-level lighting near the beach to prevent turtles being misled during laying season
  • Re-use of discarded or unwanted resources that can be repurposed within the park grounds/office
  • 100% recycle all waste water via our onsite treatment plant to be redistributed onto gardens and lawn
  • Shower heads are low flow
  • Toilets are dual flush
  • Hot water heated on demand only, by gas
  • Guests are provided tips for a sustainable stay within their check-in brochure
  • Installation of eco-friendly washing machines
  • Wildlife carers with the provisions of being a location to re-release wallabies and kangaroos that have been nursed back to health
  • Welcoming biology and school students to immerse themselves in the natural surrounds, discover the local wildlife, understand the volcanic foundations and provide excursions of our treatment plant to see how wastewater can be recycled and reused
