New thing to do

Comprising three tiered lagoons, the Bluewater Lagoon is a free family-friendly leisure facility overlooking the picturesque Pioneer River in the heart of Mackay’s City Centre. Covering an area equivalent to three 50 metre swimming pools, the Bluewater Lagoon provides a safe all-round stinger-free swimming environment.

Facilities include a waterfall which connects the two main lagoon areas which vary in depth up to 1.8 metres, a 19.5 metre water slide from the top lagoon to the middle lagoon, and an interactive children’s water playground and drop-bucket. The lagoon also provides disabled and elderly access with handrails and suitable water levels. Electric barbecue facilities are available as well as Vines Bluewater Cafe with a variety of snacks, drinks and ice creams. A 1.2 metre fence surrounds the facility to provide a secure and safe environment.
