Where people found Pokemon in Mackay

Caneland to Bluewater Quay:

This section of the Bluewater Trail features multiple points where mostly water Pokemon can be found and caught, with fairly regular respawn times. The area also includes a popular Gym where teams can battle and train.

Mackay Regional Botanic Gardens:

With three Gyms in the area, as well as multiple areas to catch a range of different Pokemon around the South Sea Islander Precinct, it's worthwhile spending an afternoon here. The Lagoons Cafe and Gallery being right there is just an added bonus.

If you feel like getting out of town a bit, make a quick dash to Marian where there are multiple spots along the Pioneer River to catch 'em all (at least what's available anyway), as well as a Gym based at Lloyd Park.
