Pioneer Valley

EungellaThe Pioneer Valley is the perfect place for those audacious adventurers and families looking to uncover more of Mackay’s prosperous hinterland!

The emerald green lowlands are carpeted by sugarcane fields and dotted with charming country townships, and the Eungella National Park is home to Australia’s longest stretch of sub-tropical rainforest. Here you can experience rainforest walks, magic views across the valley or even spot platypus at Broken River — one of the most reliable places in the world to view this elusive Australian animal in the wild! Finch Hatton Gorge, located in the foothills of the Eungella Range has excellent walking trails through the rainforest to Araluen and Wheel of Fire waterfalls.
