Calling all travellers looking for adventures off the beaten path! Please make your way to Mackay in an orderly fashion. Or a disorderly fashion. We won’t tell you your business. Just get here.
Located appropriately at the mouth of the Pioneer River, Mackay is home to winding mangroves, fun Art Deco buildings and easy access to the Great Barrier Reef—all without having to set foot in a resort town. Pack your snorkel and Nemo-themed flippers, board one of lastminute.com.au’s Mackay flights, and get on your way already.
The best way to get around on Mackay holidays is with your own set of wheels. Check out our car hire deals or hail a taxi. Bus service in the area is a bit limited, but streets are great for biking around the city if you want to burn off some calories from all that seafood you’ll be sending down your gullet.
Are you on one of the flights to Mackay that lands in the morning? Then catch the sunrise or just lounge on Harbour Beach.
Landing in the afternoon? Take a stroll down Victoria, Sydney or Wood streets and check out more Art Deco buildings than you can shake a selfie-stick at.
If you land at night, we’re sure you’ll find something to do at the more than two dozen pubs in the city centre. After you’ve knocked back a beer (or a few, or more than a few), stumble home to one of our hotels in Mackay for some shut-eye. We hear room service can cure a hangover. #itsscience
So where do all the cool kids go locally? Check out an exhibition at Artspace Mackay. And when you’re ready for some low-key eats and the song of the seabirds, head to the Marina. Remember all that seafood we were talking about? Mmm-hmm. Chow down on fish and chips or pull out all the stops at a seafood buffet. You know what they say about holidays: When in doubt, eat.
