Seaforth is a small coastal holiday and fishing town located 35km North-northwest of Mackay.

In 1899 the Queensland Government bought Seaforth Estate from H.M. Finlayson as a settlement and named it Springcliff, however local residents always called it Seaforth and it was officially renamed in 1966.
