Enjoy a refreshing swim at Mackay City’s Bluewater Lagoon, the fun of the beach within the city. Three tiers of lagoon pools provide a safe swimming environment within the Mackay Central Business District, close to barbecue facilities, public work-out equipment and playground on Bluewater Quay.
With three age-appropriate lagoons of varying depths, an interactive children’s water playground with water drop-bucket and a water slide, the lagoon is a perfect retreat for all ages. A feature waterfall connects the two main lagoon pools, while a shallow wading pool is perfect for toddlers. The Bluewater Lagoon is monitored by lifeguards, but parents must keep an eye on children at all times, as the lifeguards aren’t babysitters. Admission is free of charge, making it an affordable option for a family day of fun in the sun. Shaded picnic tables and expansive grass areas provide options for all-day relaxation. A café is located on site, and other cafes and restaurants which line the Pioneer River are easily reached within a few minutes of walking.
