We all know how good our region is, but now Mackay has received some national recognition. Popular travel website Wotif announced that Mackay is The Australian town of the year, WOOHOO go us!
Wotif travel specialist Kirsty La Bruniy said "There is so much to see and do in Mackay that we weren't surprised it took out the No. 1 spot," "The awards are based on a pricing and demand index, and with Mackay experiencing significant year-on-year growth and offering travelers plenty of affordable accommodation, 2018 is a great time to visit." Highlights included watching the wallabies and kangaroos at sunrise at Cape Hillsborough, the nearby Eungella National Park, uncrowded beaches, and the Great Barrier Reef, Ms La Bruniy said.
Two other Queensland towns made the top 10 - Bundaberg at No. 5 and Townsville at No. 7.
Isn't it great to live in such an amazing region!
