The Alara Motor Inn invites you to experience sun, sea, subtropical rainforest and new levels of comfort when you visit charming Mackay.

Our beautifully presented 4 -star motor inn is situated on the Bruce Highway just minutes from the heart of the city, Mackay Airport, beaches and all amenities.

Supermarkets, shops, hotel, and club are just a short walk and for those staying to receive medical care, we are conveniently located between the 2 major hospitals—2 minutes drive to Mackay Base Hospital and a 5 minute drive to the Mater Hospital.


Be spoilt for choice with a choice of spacious King bed or Queen bed rooms, or why not treat yourself to a King Spa room for the ultimate relaxing experience.

The Zambeli Collection provides our premium Wild Leura amenities that invoke a multi-sensory experience for mind and body free from harsh chemicals and parabens.

Travelling with the “whole” family? Our Pet-Friendly rooms are perfect for fun-loving Fido and our family rooms are large enough for everyone with multiple bedding options.


Mackay is an unexpected foodie destination— simply stroll through the city and stop in for a bite! Visit the Pine islet Lighthouse—one of the only working kerosene lighthouses left in the world or take advantage of the subtropical rainforests and bush walk to cascading waterfalls


We can’t wait to welcome you to Mackay and the Alara Motor Inn—where comfort awaits.
