Mackay Flights GuideMackay is a hidden sweet spot on the eastern coast of Queensland bursting with tourism potential. Annual summer festivals offer tourists cultural exposure through live music, dance and art exhibitions. Other attractions include Caneland Centre, the largest shopping centre in the region and Bluewater Trail, a 20-kilometer network of pathways for tourists to visit nature attractions including Bluewater Lagoon, Bluewater Quay and the Mackay Regional Botanic Gardens.
If you're considering a quick trip to one of Australia's larger cities, two major highways, a railroad and a regional airport operating in the city can easily transport you to major metropolitan areas such as Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Townsville and Cairns.
Daytime temperatures during the wet, summer much can reach up to 29-30 degrees, but can be as low as 21-25 degrees during the dry, winter months. Most of Mackay's festivals are held in June and July.

August and September are two of the driest months, making this an optimal time to fly to Mackay as well.
