Walkerston is situated approximately 10 kilometres west of Mackay on the Peak Downs Highway, a small country town with most facilities and services.

Be sure to turn off the highway to the Historic Greenmount Homestead. The Greenmount site was first settled in 1862 by Captain John Mackay and the homestead was later built in 1912 by the pioneering Cook family. This home is now a beautifully preserved museum that serves as gateway to the region’s past, with traditional Queensland Architecture, complete with original furniture, fittings and ornaments, and the original owner’s house maid – Gloria Arrow. Tours around this grand home are open to the public at a small fee. The Greenmount Homestead is open 9.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. Sunday to Friday.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
