An award-winning venue in Australia, the Mackay Entertainment and Convention Centre put the city of Mackay firmly on the country’s cultural map. The multi-million facility boasts a 1090-seat auditorium, four meeting rooms, a 100-seat studio, two foyers and two plenary halls.
Space is certainly not an issue here, and neither is technology, thanks to the state-of-the-art facilities that allow the Mackay Entertainment and Convention Centre to put on big events throughout the year. The line-up of events include festivals, such as Mackay City Centre Easter Festival and Mackay Mazda Festival of Arts, as well as comedy shows, musicals, live concerts and theatrical performances.
Mackay’s ideal location in Queensland enables visitors from all over the state to experience these memorable events. The city is very proud of its boutique convention centre and banqueting facility, which combines small-town warmth with dedicated customer service. The convention centre is also an easy walk from restaurants, bars and shops in the area.
There are multiple hotels located within walking distance of the Mackay Entertainment and Convention Centre. If you’re staying elsewhere in town, you can park in the designated areas off Alfred Street or in one of the on-street parking spots. The Mackay Airport is only 10 minutes away via taxi, shuttle bus or car, making it easy to fly in from Brisbane, Cairns or another Australian city.
