Lamberts Beach Mackay Slade Point

Lamberts Beach Mackay.

Slade Point is one of the older suburbs of Mackay and one of the most beautiful. Once regarded as a lower class suburb, Slade Point is today a sought after residential area with many magnificent homes.

At the end of the Slade Point Road is a high scenic lookout, Turners Lookout, which gives absolutely glorious sea views all the way to the surrounding islands of Brampton, St Bees and Keswick. The Slade Point Lookout is an ideal whale watching vantage point.

Slade Point, Mackay, Queensland

Looking down on Lamberts Beach from the Slade Point lookout. Slade Point is a Mackay suburb which holds many hidden treasures and was named Slade Point by Captain James Cook when he passed along the coast in the Endeavour in 1770.

You get to Slade Point from the Mackay Harbour Road and a short drive takes you to some of the finest views of the glimmering ocean that is available anywhere.

Slade Point Road ends at Lamberts Beach, a beautiful clean, sandy beach ideal for family picnics and excellent swimming.

There is parkland running along the foreshore with swings and playground for the kids, free gas BBQ's, tables and seats and lovely shaded area where the whole family can enjoy a pleasant day in the sun and surf.

During the whale migration season it is not uncommon to see whales from Lamberts Beach. The Slade Point lookout is a superb spot to sit, admire the views and hopefully spot a few whales either coming and going from the warm Whitsunday waters.

McCready's Creek, Slade Point. Opposite Lamberts Beach is the Seabreeze Tavern, a nice hotel where you can enjoy a cold drink and delicious meal. Some of the houses along the Esplanade are among the best in Mackay and are coveted for their fantastic views and prime positions.

Fishing is great around the McCready's Creek inlet and the views across to Blacks Beach and beyond are superb. There is a small park with free BBQ facilities and at high tide the scene is so beautiful you will forget you are on the edge of suburbia. If your into photography, McCready's Creek is the perfect location for those sunset shots.

Slade Point Mackay really is a hidden jewel amongst the diamonds of paradise.
