Council facilities

Discover Mackay's best kept secrets

More than half a million people visit our region each year to see our crystal clear waters and sandy beaches, pristine rainforest hinterland, to taste our mouth-watering local cuisine and visit our family-friendly council facilities including the state-of-the-art Mackay Entertainment and Convention Centre.

In the CBD, visitors can cool down in our popular Bluewater Lagoon Aquatic Facility which is positioned next to our award-winning shared pathway, the Bluewater Trail which provides a ‘ring of activity’ around Mackay’s City Centre encompassing the stunning Mackay Regional Botanic Gardens and Bluewater Quay.

The Mackay region has much to offer our national and international visitors. We hope that your stay here is a pleasant one and that you find yourself coming back to continue your discovery of this tropical oasis.
