Things to Do and See

There are a lot of things to do and see in Mackay.  Mackay Motor Inn is located in the perfect spot to explore them all by either a short walk, using public transport or your own transport.


We’re so close to the award winning Botanical Gardens, you can get there with a short walk.  A short drive will get you to the main shopping precinct at Canelands and the CBD.  Or if you’re after some nature, we have beaches and rain forests all within a short driving distance.
