Travellers Rest is about 100 kilometres north of Mackay. Set on 60 hectares of semi-tropical forest, the park is well shaded under the large canopy. The property runs onto the beach offering hours of fishing, walks and fossicking. There is a walk leading to the lagoon where there are many species of water birds and animal life. The whole area is a haven for bird watchers and other wildlife abounds. Travellers Rest has five cabins and ample caravan and camping sites.
