Discover the neighborhoods of Mackay


The tropical city of Mackay is found on the eastern coast of Australia’s Queensland state. The town is set on the Pioneer River and got its start as a cattle station. Mackay Airport serves the area and is only 5km south of the city center. Bicycles serve as one of the best ways to traverse the city, but taxis and buses are available.

The atmosphere and climate of the city is very warm and welcoming in Mackay, and there are several things worth checking out. The land is noted for its sugar cane industry, and with the city being known as the “Sugar Capital of Australia”, the Mackay Working Sugar Mill Tour can be an informative and unique adventure. Beautiful Art Deco buildings grace the city and provide a nice scene when heading out to Harbour Beach or St. Paul’s United Church, a typical wooden country church built in 1898. National and international artists have work on display at the Artspace Mackay for art lovers, and Mackay Regional Botanical Gardens can provide a refreshing outing. Shopping can be found in Mount Pleasant Greenfields and Caneland Central, and plenty of pub options can be found in the heart of the city.
