Mirani is a rural town just a 40 minute drive from the heart of Mackay. First settled for cattle grazing a thriving sugar cane industry soon took over. Mirani Shire has two sugar mills and it is common place to see walls of sugarcane growing around people's homes. Whilst the town has much to see and do it is its proximity to the incredible Eungella National Park that really sets it apart.

Just a 50km drive and you will find yourself at the Eungella National Park. A rainforest paradise this stunning location provides the incredible opportunity to swim with a platypus in the wild. If this elusive creature can't be found you won't leave disappointed with the secluded waterfalls and rainforest walks enough to take your breath away. Eungella is the perfect location to experience the best Queensland has to offer with endless wildlife and views that will take your breath away.
