Find a hotel


Mirani is situated 38 kilometres west of Mackay in the Pioneer Valley and is the headquarters of the local shire council and a proud tidy town winner on several occasions. It boasts a museum and library, Post Office, Olympic sized swimming pool, Caravan Park, 18 hole golf course and three squash courts. The 112 year old Mirani Hotel can supply you with a cold beer and some interesting yarns from the locals. Groceries, meat, bakery and fuel supplies are all available.

Mirani area highlights include; the Mirani Museum which brings to life the early pioneer lifestyle and also includes historical industry displays, Illawong Fauna & Flora Sanctuary (don’t miss animal feeding time!), Meadowsweet Herb Gardens, Kinchant Dam – a water sport wonderland which offers a resort with caravan and camp sites as well as cabins and which is home to Australia’s largest rustic bush furniture display, and the picture perfect Pioneer Valley Golf Course – watch out for the kangaroos!

The Kungurri Hill Climb, a dirt bike race to find “King of the Mountain” is held once a year approximately 16 kilometres from Mirani township.

The Wintermoon Folk Festival is held on the Labour Day long weekend every year at Cameron’s Pocket about a half hour drive from Mirani.

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.
