Kerrisdale residents enjoy the amenity of over 50 hectares of open space stretching along the entire eastern frontage. This land will never be developed. Walking tracks around the wetland area are popular for an evening stroll, walking the dog or finding vantage points to observe the diversity of bird life.
The playground in the 4,000 square metre extensively landscaped Norm Shuttlewood Park is well patronised and families young and old enjoy the gas barbecue facilities in the park.
Spoilt for convenience, Northern Beaches Central is less than 2 km away or just 4 km to Mt Pleasant. Bunnings and the Home Centre is so handy and just 15 minutes to the Mackay CBD. There are 11 schools within 5 km.
The best beaches in Mackay are only a short ten minute drive away. As a community, Kerrisdale will always have an abundance of lifestyle amenity that can never be overbuilt – Wetlands, focal parks, Riparian strips, sporting fields, hike and bike trails are some of the key lifestyle features in place or planned for future stages.
