My husband & I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary early this year. We decided we would like to celebrate in Mackay where we went to school & started our careers. We also wanted a place & date when all our family & bridal party could join us. Our best man came from Holland with his family. Our groomsman from Scotland... More

Due to time restrictions, my husband and I only stayed one night at the Shores Holiday Apartments but we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and are very glad that we chose to stop at beautiful Blacks Beach rather than at Mackay. it was quieter and beautiful and totally worth the extra 10 km drive. Our townhouse was spacious and, although some... More

We only stayed for 2 nights but would have loved to stay longer. Unit was well suited to our needs, clean and more than big enough for us. Good distance from shops and everything you need. We will definitely stay here again. The beach is magnificent and we were lucky enough to be there on a full moon to watch... More

My wife and I decided to get away for a 3 day weekend and chose to stay at The Shores as it is right on the beach. We weren't disappointed with this aspect of it at all with a magnificent beach just out the back. In addition to this there are a handful of other beaches from a couple of... More

The units are a little old, but clean and tidy and reasonably well equipped. There is wifi available, and the in-room documentation says you can get vouchers from the office for free usage (otherwise it's quite pricy). It's about 10km from Mackay proper. We stayed in townhouse with two bedrooms, which were laid out as requested by us (bed-wise). No... More

Thank you for posting a review on Trip Advisor. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again another time. My apologies if the unit was a bit dusty. The unit had been empty for several days before your arrival. Our cleaners obviously didn't do a thorough pre check the morning you booked in. I have... More

The Shores is in a garden setting, walk through to the beach; pools, tennis courts, volleyball. Units are large and well equipped. But we found they were not good value for money. We have paid less for equal, even better. Little things we needed fixing were promptly attended to. It is nice and quiet, and very family friendly. Staff happy,... More

Was in Mackay for a wedding and this was one of the cheaper options by the sea in Mackay. In saying this be weary accommodation in Mackay seems to be rather expensive in general. Our apartment was clean, well furnished and comfortable for the four of us. Would have been nice to have two bathrooms but really not a big... More
