Marvelous Mackay - shelter and sustenance on the Queensland coast
Reviewed May 2017
Because of the huge 6.5m tides, there are few safe anchorages near the town, which makes the marina a more than usually attractive option. But the side-by-side islands of Keswick and St Bees are just 16nm off the coast from the marina entrance and offer several anchorages. The best is probably a small bay on the north side of Keswick.
