Eton is situated on the Peak Downs Highway and is approximately 25 kilometres west of Mackay city. This little sugar town has a popular country hotel, lovely catholic church, butcher, general store and showgrounds where the local pony club is regularly seen practising and competing.
Just past the township of Eton, you can enjoy country life to the full at Stoney Creek. Go horse trail riding or join a cattle muster, complete with a barbecue lunch including damper and billy tea. Budget and cottage accommodation is also available.
