What's on in The Mackay Isaac Region

The secluded islands and sub-tropical rainforests of Mackay beckon adventurers keen to explore untouched nature. But did you know that watching kangaroos salute the morning sun on Cape Hillsborough, or platypus frolicking at Eungella National Park and going outback and exploring the rugged landscape of the Isaac Region is just scratching the surface of what’s on in Mackay Isaac Region?

Australia’s sugar capital boasts something even sweeter: a diverse events calendar.

Mackay Beach Horse Races

Mackay Beach Horse Races

On Saturday 12th August 2023
10:00am - 10:00pm

Categories: Event , Sporting Events

With the beach horse races as the cornerstone, the surrounding festivities will comprise a variety of other elements, including a pre-event concert, pre-race parade, a variety of packaged VIP food and beverage/premium race-viewing offerings, a European-style Beach Club featuring prominent Australian DJs, post-race Winner’s Circle, Fashions on the Sand, Post-Race After Party, Sunday Recovery Session, market stalls, food trucks and more. Nothing like your average city racing carnival, Mackay Beach Horse Races doesn’t take itself too seriously and offers plenty of local flavour.

It aims to strengthen community spirit, build on regional identity, become an iconic must-do/bucket list Queensland event, and draw extended tourism-based visitation to Mackay from the broader region, intrastate, interstate and abroad.
