Mackay General Information

The coast of Queensland, Australia is full of superb holiday destinations, from the Gold Coast to Townsville, Family Islands National Park to Lizard Island. Mackay, a small city of 80,000 people, is one of the most notable treasures in the state and a viable gateway to the immaculate Whitsundays and spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Great Barrier Reef.

Mackay roughly resides between two prominent Queensland hubs: Cairns is 735 km to the north and Brisbane is 975 km to the south. As a result, the city serves as a wonderful base from which to settle in and explore the gorgeous, contiguous area at large. Of course, Mackay is not without inherent charm and entices countless visitors to devote a few days of precious holiday time to enjoy what the city has to offer. While major landmarks are few and far between, the City Heart quarter of Mackay is a lovely Art Deco-laden district with several good restaurants, shops and cafés. Artspace Mackay is a pre-eminent gallery for regional talent and the Historical Farleigh Sugar Mill chronicles the city’s claim to fame legacy as a foremost cane sugar producer.
