Heritage Walk

Mackay, Mackay Area

The prosperity and pioneering heritage of Mackay is reflected within the Central Business District, a collection of beautifully preserved buildings and art, which give an insight into the region's diverse history.

Join Mackay Visitor Information Centre volunteers on the Heritage Walk, a guided stroll through Mackay's Central Business District to view buildings of architectural significance, many from the 1930's Art Deco era.

Despite being settled in 1862, many of Mackay's earliest buildings were destroyed in a devastating cyclone in 1918. Many of the re-built structures were from the 1920 to 1940 era, making the style of Mackay's Central Business District unique for a Queensland city.

The 90-minute walk includes historic structures that are listed with the National Trust, including the Mackay Court House, the Town Hall, Holy Trinity Parish Church and the Masonic Temple.

This walk can also be done as a self-guided expedition. Visit the Mackay Visitor Information Centre on Nebo Road for a copy of the Heritage Walk brochure and to enquire about times to join a guided tour. Guided tours are seasonal and subject to change.
