The Port of Hay Point, 30 kilometres south of Mackay, is one of the biggest and most efficient coal ports in the world. The Port Administration building features a public viewing gallery offering fantastic views of the two coal terminals.

Loading takes place on a 24 hours per day, 365 days per year basis - over 5,000 ships have departed Dalrymple Bay since the terminal was opened in 1983 and over 7,300 ships from Hay Point since it's opening in 1970.

Big Cane Toad


His scientific name is Bufo Marinus, but the locals have nicknamed him 'Buffy'.

Situated in the town centre of Sarina, approximately 35 kilometres south of Mackay, Buffy is a large Cane Toad statue. It was originally crafted out of paper mache in 1983 to become a float for a sugar festival. It was later cast in fibreglass to become a fixture in the town, in recognition of Sarina's cane farming history.

Buffy is located on Broad Street, which is also the Bruce Highway, the main road that passes through the middle of the town of Sarina. It sits in-between the north and south bound lanes.

Facilities close to Buffy include angled parking, public toilets, a gazebo, rubbish bins and picnic tables under trees for shade, making it a lovely area to stop for a picnic, and a photo with this iconic big statue.
