Savour the Flavours: Six Dining Spots Worth a Booking

20 August 2023

We really do have it all at Dunes Harbour Beach. The perfect mix of sun, sand, activities and last but definitely not least… delicious eats. If you’re looking to make a move or you’re already a Dunes local, we’ve rounded up some of the best bites in Mackay to add to your dining list.

Roshni Indian: Roshni, which means happiness and light is a joint venture between Raj a Restaurateur from Brisbane and Jessica a marketing professional from Mackay. With contemporary design and influences from ancient Indian traditions, Roshni offers a sophisticated dining and takeaway experience.

Fusion128: Fusion128 is a locally loved restaurant and bar, set just a block back from Pioneer River. A menu of popular Modern Australian dishes are given a twist by incorporating native bush herbs and taking culinary influence from Asian and French techniques. The funky fit out makes for a smart casual feel with exposed brick walls met by chocolate brown hues, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Sorbello’s Italian Restaurant: An Italian family owned restaurant since 1996, Sorbello’s Italian offers authentic Italian dishes that cater to everyone. Sorbello’s is home to one of the city’s best wine cellars with over 100 wine varieties available so there is always something to match your meal or taste. The restaurant also hosts popular Wine Dinners and Jazz Lunches throughout the year.

Breakwater Bar and Restaurant: We couldn’t make a list of our favourite dining spots without mentioning the beautiful waterfront restaurant Breakwater. Only a 15 minute walk from Dunes, it’s the perfect spot for a Sunday lunch by the ocean with a range of classic pub-style feeds and fresh seafood.

Moss on Wood: Located in the heart of Mackay’s CBD, Moss on Wood is a relaxed modern Australian venue with a bright and airy feel. This atmosphere creates a perfect space to go with friends, family and work colleagues to enjoy a meal or beverage.

Bar94: Owner and Head Chef, Dan, has worked in restaurants around the globe and has returned home to Mackay to raise his family and share his love of good food with the community. Inspired by the flavours of Spain, Peru and modern Australia, Bar 94 features an impressive cocktail menu, extensive wine and spirit list and craft beer favourites.

Dunes Harbour Beach is surrounded by culinary delights. Whether you’re in the mood for fresh seafood, contemporary Australian cuisine, casual beachside fare, or a succulent steak, this community has you covered!
