Hay Point Foreshore is a stretch of quiet, sandy beach and luxuriant vegetation overlooking the turquoise waters of the Coral Sea. It is also a critically-endangered “beach scrub” habitat, a remnant of vine forests on coastal sands which once stretched all along the Mackay region’s coastline. Home to many native plants, butterflies, birds and reptiles, it has suffered badly from past clearing and invasion by exotic species and is in need of some tender care to restore it to its former glory.

Activities include planting native plants propogated in the nearby school nursery, maintaing existing plantings and of course some hard yakka handweeding
