Mackay is the gateway to the Pioneer Valley. The park is famous for the walking tracks and swimming holes of Finch Hatton Gorge. Eungella National Park, located at the very top of the range, is the longest and oldest stretch of subtropical rainforest in Australia, one of the few places in Australia where platypus can still be seen swimming in the wild.
Mackays’ three main shopping centres contain more than 400 speciality stores – Caneland Shoppingtown, Mount Pleasant Shopping Centre and The City Heart. You don’t have to go very far to experience the wealth of arts and crafts available in the Mackay region, the galleries and boutiques nearby provide a convenient snapshot of what’s happening in the scene.
