Where to live?

by wyhoe

Hi, I am in a dilemma as to where to live Mackay or Maryborough? Probably base my decision on a good public primary school big in sports and recreation. Also would like to live near a water inlet for my keen fisherman. Most likely an outer suburb as i have 2 cattle dogs and use to living on the land. If anyone can help would love to hear from you.

RE: Where to live?

I live in Mackay and if this is any help to you I have to warn you that house prices here are through the roof.

Mackay is now Queensland's second fastest growing town. The Gold Coast is number one.

Even if you don't buy, renting here is a nightmare. If you do get a house or unit you will pay through the roof for it. The newspaper is full of stories of people living in tents, cars and shipping containers!

The reason is that more mines have sprung up nearby and they pay big dollars. Thousands have flocked here to work at the mines and the town is bulging at the seames.

Hope this helps...it is still a great place to live though!

Travel Tips for Mackay

Our language

by lou31

Mackay locals have a quirk with the English language compared to other areas.
If you are talking to us we are likely to end our sentences with...'heh'.
So we would say...'It's a nice day heh'. Or 'Gee it's hot heh!'. Or 'Nice day for the beach heh'.
'We're not weird just a bit different...heh'

Seaforth Beach

by lou31

Seaforth lies about 40 kilometres north of Mackay and has been one of the more popular beaches and day trip destinations for years. Facilities at this quaint beach community include a swimming enclosure, bowls club, nice park like surroundings and a large and well maintained caravan park right on the beach. There are also public toilets and showers.
There is the convenience of a shop where you can buy anything from an icecreams, take away food, souvenirs, bait and tackle etc.
Don't forget the usual long sandy beach, palm trees and exotic bird life.
Sunday morning markets offer local craft and produce from 8.30 to 11.30.
Nearby Victor creek and it’s boat ramp are also very popular with the local fishermen.
