NAIDOC Family Day moves to Jubilee Park

Published: 07 Jul 2022

Council have worked with the Mackay NAIDOC committee to move the popular NAIDOC Family Fun Day from Queens Park to Jubilee Park tomorrow (Friday, July 8).

This decision was made after the recent prolonged wet weather event forced the cancellation of the last two days of Daly Bay Illuminate due to waterlogging.

Upon inspection of the Queens Park grounds by the Parks team, it has been decided that the grounds are still unsuitable for driving on with food trucks, passenger vehicles and equipment.

To facilitate these food trucks at Jubilee Park there will be some reduced kerbside parking along Alfred Street to allow them to set up adjacent to the park.

The NAIDOC Street Parade will still assemble in Macalister Street at 10am and make its way down Victoria and Sydney streets before turning down Alfred Street.
