A previously forgotten service laneway in the heart of Mackay’s main dining precinct now provides a quirky offsite option for business event functions and partners programmes. It features large-scale, colourful street art and murals, including a massive rainbow lorikeet and Ulysses butterfly. The artworks are enhanced by Augmented Reality technology which animates some of the artworks when viewed, courtesy of the city centre’s readily-available free Wi-Fi.
The award-winning Mackay Entertainment and Convention Centre (MECC) has recently enhanced its environmental credentials with extensive solar installations now in place atop the entire Mackay Convention Centre Precinct rooftops. Located in a region with an abundance of sunshine, solar makes sense for Mackay.
