Six picturesque sandy beaches are in close proximity to town. Mountain ranges offer an exciting contrast, boasting spectacular views of the surrounding area. Whitsunday Islands are further north but easily accessible for leisure and recreation. The town has a public high school and state and private primary schools and preschools. Many children commute daily to private high schools in Mackay - these maintain excellent academic record. Two large coal export harbours in shire area with railway connection to the mines in the hinterland.

The facilities of Hay Point and Dalrymple Bay make Sarina a focal point for coal exportation, while sugar cane farming, sugar milling, (sugar mill in town), alcohol distilling, dairying, cattle grazing, tropical fruit growing, horticulture, aquaculture, fishing and tourism provide further development in the region.

Sarina has a 16 bed public hospital, a residential aged care facility comprising a 48 bed community nursing hostel and 10 independent living units.
