Mackay is a city on the eastern coast of Queensland, Australia, on the banks of the Pioneer River. The city is close to several tourist attractions including Eungella National Park, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Whitsunday Islands. The Bluewater Trail project links several new attractions and tourism pieces around the city including the Bluewater Lagoon, the Bluewater Quay and the Mackay Regional Botanic Gardens.
