North Mackay are part of the traditional lands of the Yuwibara people.

The first notable developments in North Mackay began in 1867, five years after the town of Mackay was established.

The construction of Mackay Harbour in 1935 and the electrification of North Mackay residential blocks just beyond the Sydney Street Bridge suburbanised North Mackay.


If current trends continue a diverse socio-economic mix of working families with children and retirees. A continued emergence of higher density dwellings and rental housing for Mackay residents. Health is projected to be the main employing industry underpinned by the Mater Hospital situated within North Mackay. Growth is projected to be driven by gentrification of one of Mackay region’s oldest neighbourhoods in close proximity to employment opportunities.
