Mackay Travel Tips & Suggestions

Because I'm Australian, for me, Mackay is only good for a vacation, not for a permanent stay -- everything is so expensive.

Safe, maybe. Friendly, maybe. Lots to do, you're kidding -- it's a mining and cane farm town! Any backpacker coming here has made a wrong turn off the highway to Airlie Beach. It's a bit like taking a day trip to Slough or Luton -- totally pointless!

Mackay is a great, friendly town -- lots to do.

Mackay is a safe town to walk and explore. Non-touristy and friendly locals.

Mackay comments only. Don't discuss the hostels here, post a review on the hostel's page instead.
