Ball Bay is a beautiful little bay 48kms north of Mackay and 120kms south of Airlie Beach. Situated on the coast, Ball Bay is very close to Cape Hillsborough National Park which offers plenty of scenic walks and lookouts.
A large campground is available next to the beach which has grassy sites, toilets, showers and wood BBQ’s. While the sites are unpowered they make for easy camping for families with million dollar views.
Fishing options are available as close as the beach and boating around nearby islands will give you plenty of species to target from coral trout and other reef species to flathead and mackerel to name a few. There are good boat launching facilities at Seaforth which is only 8km away by car.
