Mackay is a relatively underdeveloped city with pristine natural surroundings including the Eungella National Park, the Whitsunday Islands and the Great Barrier Reef. Visitor numbers are picking up and the tourism industry has a lot of potential here.
Mackay has 31 beaches within driving distance and the islands just off Mackay are renowned for their sparkling blue waters and great fishing.
Some of the recent developments in the city include the transformation of River St, which now has cafes, space for weekend markets, stage areas and an upgraded fishing jetty.
The Mackay Regional Council also initiated the Bluewater trail project, which encompases over 20km of bikeways and pedestrian paths linking numerous tourism attractions including the Regional Botanic Gardens, the Bluewater Quay and the Bluewater Lagoon, a family-friendly leisure facility overlooking the Pioneer river. Mackay experiences a humid, subtropical climate with the wet season starting in December and bringing with it almost daily rainfall, high humidity and very warm nights.
The verdict: The tourism and marine sector potential in Mackay is strong and it will likely continue to develop into a thriving tourist hotspot. For now, it's a quiet city that offers a laid back lifestyle with fantastic natural attractions right at its doorstep.
