South Mackay


South Mackay is similar in nature to its neighbour East Mackay, yet holds a greater diversity of real estate. Indeed, the two suburbs flow into one another so well that it's hard to discern where one stops and the other starts.

This is where you'll find "Old Mackay" at its best, in homes from the early days and a number of historic buildings. A fair amount of renovation activity is taking place and this is helping to modernise the stately Queenslanders and brick dwellings.

Also located within suburb boundaries are such important facilities as the Mackay Airport, sports grounds, State and private schools, retirement homes and hotels.

Little available land remains for development, so construction is pretty much limited to where new townhouses and homes can be built, where once others stood.
