Mackay waterfront redevelopment opportunities

Have your say and help shape and transform the Mackay waterfront.

Council is exploring opportunities to redevelop the Mackay waterfront areas with the view of creating a vibrant, active, memorable and exciting space.

Redeveloping the Pioneer River and Binnington Esplanade waterfronts has the potential to transform the tourism and liveability aspects of the region, strengthen and diversify the regional and Queensland economies, revitalise the Mackay City Centre and create new job opportunities.

Although the project is only in the early stages of planning, the community is being provided an opportunity to have input into how these areas could be redeveloped.

Visit Connecting Mackay for more information or to complete an online survey.

Each completed survey will go in the draw to win an accommodation and meal package valued at over $400 dollars, thanks to Ocean International Hotel!

The consultation period closes 5pm, Wednesday, July 14.
