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.

The Serenity Coast


Take an opportunity to explore a relatively unspoiled area that has retained much of its original historic charm while having developed into a thriving business area.

Collectively known as the Serenity Coast, the townships that stretch from Hay Point to St Lawrence enjoy a selection of beautiful beaches and prime fishing locations. Enjoy the area's country hospitality, scenic mountain ranges, national parks and prime fishing locations.

Some of the key attractions within the Serenity Coast include Cape Palmerston National Park, Notch Point and the dugong sanctuary in Clairview. Visit one of many unspoiled beaches providing swimming, sailing and fishing as well as sweeping views of the surrounding coastline from selected lookouts.

The undeveloped wilderness surrounding Cape Palmerston's camping areas provides access to excellent fishing locations and rugged bush walks. Experience magical glimpses of elusive fireflies which inhabit the bushland area in the evening.

Sarina War Memorial


WWI memorials like that in the north Queensland sugar town of Sarina speak volumes of community pride and patriotism. Their soldier statue was erected for the 1919 ANZAC Day ceremonies, paid for through public subscription. It specifically says that it is a 'commemoration' of Sarina Shire residents who enlisted: 114 men.

The outpouring of grief that came with 60,000 Australian deaths on the other side of the world, and buried overseas, was publicly expressed through memorials. The soldier statue, as in Sarina, was Queensland's preferred choice.

Sarina's soldier, crafted by Townsville monumental masons Melrose and Fenwick, stands head slightly bowed, hands crossed over a reversed rifle, resting on his left boot.

He stands on a pedestal which bears a marble plaque and 24 names, the locals who died in WWI. Similar plaques have been added to honour those who fought in subsequent conflicts: WWII, Korea, Malaya, Borneo and Vietnam.

Sarina's war memorial is found in a central median strip, where two major regional roads meet, the Bruce Highway and the Marlborough Sarina Road.
