Ha! We flew in and out of there a few weeks back. Oh well.
Mackay must be one of the most uninspiring larger cities in the country so will not be rushing back!
If you do go there take the hour to drive to Eungella
We stayed in the wonderful Chalet there to avoid Mackay, atop a mountain in Eungella NQ - "Land Of The Clouds" Never heard of it until this week, and pretty amazing place! View from Chalet is below.
Saw many wild Platypus swimming around there. Until then did not know QLD even HAD any Platypus!
