One of the safest and most popular ways to cool down from the humid, Mackay heat, the Bluewater Lagoon located in the heart of the CBD along the river is a definite must for visitors to the region. Great for families with children of all ages, the lagoon is made up of three tiered lagoons equivalent to three 50 metre swimming pools. With a water slide, deep pool, kids pool and kids water playground, you could easily spend hours lounging around the lagoon and playing in the water. The lagoon also features barbecues for the public to use and an onsite kiosk selling a range of quick eats and treats. Entry to the lagoon is free and it offers disabled and elderly access into the pools. An enjoyable way to spend the day in Mackay, the Bluewater Lagoon situated opposite the shopping centre, Caneland, is a thriving hotspot in the warmer months for locals and tourists alike.
