Tired of resort town after resort town and just want a true slice of Queensland? If so, then pack your bags for Mackay. This coastal town has plenty of rainforest and winding mangroves on the outskirts, plus tropical streets lined with beautiful Art Deco buildings to explore.
Sprinkle in a few al fresco restaurants and a picturesque promenade along the marina, and you’ve got a relaxing holiday off the beaten track. Pack that big, floppy beach hat and your own monogrammed mai tai glass for your holiday to Mackay!
Not surprisingly, Mackay flights land at Mackay Airport (MKY). There are a few local buses you can take, but the best ways to get around are either hailing a taxi or checking out one of Wotif’s car hire options. Or go green and bring your bike!
If your flights to Mackay arrive in the morning, enjoy your morning cuppa in the sea breezes of the marina. Ready for a stroll after your afternoon flight? Head down Victoria, Sydney or Wood Street and check out the Art Deco architecture.
Landing at night? Close your eyes, spin around and point. You’re bound to be facing one of over two-dozen local pubs where you can wet your whistle. Draw straws with your travel mates (the short one gets to be the deso!) and head back to one of our Mackay hotels to recharge.
What do the locals do? They go to Artspace Mackay to check out regional, national and international artists. Well, that and keep their pottery cabinets stocked with one-of-a-kind coffee mugs and vases.
Want a Mackay holiday without having to restock your wallet? Check out Wotif’s cheap flights to Mackay. You could save enough to bring back a new mug for every day of the week. Or perhaps another commemorative, monogrammed mai tai glass?
