Seaforth Camping Reserve
Attention campers - Seaforth Esplanade redevelopment
Council is currently redeveloping the Seaforth Esplanade and works are under way until the end of August, 2023, weather permitting.
During the works campers may experience some minor noise disturbance.
The works will occur directly in front of the swimming enclosure. The swimming enclosure will remain operational and beach access will be provided at various access points.
Picnic areas with barbeques will be available near the camping reserve. The camp kitchen, camping ground amenities and existing playground will remain operational.

Seaforth is a quaint beachfront town that is also one of the most popular recreational fishing destinations in the Mackay region.
It is the ideal location to launch a boat to explore the beautiful Newry Island group, via the boat ramp at Victor Creek.
Seaforth facilities include a bowls club, public swimming enclosure and nearby public toilets.
The camping grounds are located right on the edge of the beach with amazing ocean views.
