When in Mackay, you need to soak up the lifestyle like a local. Grab a meal or a cup of coffee in one of the city centre’s great cafes and restaurants or hit the boutiques and go shopping. Take a self-guided tour of the heritage listed, art deco buildings, catch an act at the Mackay Entertainment and Convention Centre, or take some time and explore Artspace Gallery’s ever-changing exhibitions.
Head to the vibrant marina and gaze out across the water, while enjoying the friendly atmosphere of a chic bar or eatery right at the water’s edge. Alternatively, grab some freshly caught seafood from the Mackay Seafood Market, pack a picnic and head to the beach for a secluded dinner.
Escape to the cooler climes of the hinterland, tuck yourself away in a bed and breakfast and soak up the view of the Pioneer Valley. Relax, take your time and explore.
