Walk, run and ride

The Mackay region has many fantastic shared pathways for everyone to enjoy – including the Gooseponds, Bluewater Trail and Cross City Link. These pathways offer great opportunities to get out for a walk, a run or a ride for fitness, fun or commuting.

Active Towns

Mackay was one of three councils selected by the Queensland Government to take part in the Active Towns initiative. The $6 million program co-funded by the State Government and Mackay Regional Council ran from 2012-2015 and delivered new walking and cycling infrastructure and education programs to increase walking and cycling in the region.
