Mackay Show

#MackayPride on display

Council’s display at the Mackay Show this year will be 'smarter' than ever before.

The display will be a high tech display, surrounded by trees and plants of all sizes, park benches to rest weary legs and a Library kid’s zone.

The centrepiece of this year's display is the Library's latest show-stopper - a brand new, pop-up Portahub (portable eLibrary). The Portahub will be stocked with the latest info about our Libraries and will feature high tech gadgets like 3D printer, iPads, tablets and more.

Giveaways at the display this year will include books from the libraries, dog chews and dog leads from the Local Laws team, calico bags from Waste Services 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 Gardens and Local Laws Officers. Councillors will also attend during peak times and the public can sit down and have a talk with a local councillor.

Visit the council display at Pavilion 2 for a chance to win a trip for two, to State of Origin Game III at Suncorp Stadium, including 2 nights accommodation and flights! Read the terms and conditions.
