Mackay Show

#MackayPride on display

Council’s display at the Mackay Show this year is guaranteed to be a show-stopper!

The display will include heaps of giveaways and prizes, including a Cowboys Experience package. The package will include two free tickets into the exclusive Townsville Hit Hut to a game of your choice  plus two nights accommodation.

One of the new additions to this year's display is the impressive 20 meter long mobile library. Packed full of library books and information, the mobile library is likely to be a regular feature each year at the Mackay Show.

The centrepiece of this year's display is the Park and Environment 'find yourself in a park' attraction. This area will include interactive get-active, recreation and relaxation areas with a mountain bike to be won!

Giveaways at the display this year will also include books from the libraries, rubber balls and dog leads from the Local Laws team, calico bags from Waste Services and water bottles and filtered water refills thanks to our Water Services team.

A wide cross section of staff will be at the council Show display, ranging from Library and Economic Development staff to Parks and Environment and Local Laws officers. Councillors will also attend during peak times and the public can sit down and have a cuppa with a councillor during peak Show times.

"Sunny" the Gold Coast Suns mascot will also make an appearance, with heaps of Sun's giveaways to hand out.
