The friendly town of Sarina in Queensland really has managed to get the balance right. It has all the charm of a country town, but also boasts good facilities, thriving businesses, and is close to the beach. Perfect!
Located in the Mackay Region, Sarina is about 300km from Rockhampton, with easy access to the Brice Highway and the North Coast railway line.
Industries here include sugar cane growing and milling, and agriculture, and the town is a major supplier of ethanol.
Sarina has several striking heritage buildings, and facilities include state primary and high schools, and a rugby league club that has produced such players as Martin Bella, Dale Shearer, Kevin Campion and Wendell Sailor.
