Known as Australia’s sugarcane capital, a trip to Mackay doesn’t get any sweeter.
Mackay, sitting pretty on Queensland's eastern coast, is a sweet spot of beach vibes, green hideaways and a sprinkling of modern charm. Its never-ending beaches alongside the Coral Sea make a perfect playground for all your waterside fun. But if green is more your scene, Mackay’s rainforests and national parks are a wildlife wonderland.
Take a stroll around Mackay, where every street tells a story. Make sure to immerse yourself in the city's cultural and events scene — it's a smorgasbord of live tunes, creative arts and exciting sports.
