There’s something about Mackay.

If there’s a place you’re likely to meet a wallaby on the beach then Mackay takes the prize. It’s purely not marketing spin, Instagram is filled with images – just search #CapeHillsborough – of the delightful critters on the beach at sunrise.

Longing to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and relocate your family to a laid-back lifestyle? Then a closer look at Mackay is a must.

The Mackay region is a unique blend of where the rainforest meets the ocean presenting an abundance of nature experiences while living in a high amenity, family-friendly country town.

Located in central Queensland, the Mackay region has a population of over 110,000 and is considered one of the fastest-growing regions in Queensland. According to the Mackay Regional Council, its economic profile is fuelled by strong activity in the resources sector, resurgence in agribusiness, and growth in construction, logistics and tourism. The Mackay region is the gateway to the rich coal deposits in the Bowen and Galilee Basins. It is one of the largest sugar-producing regions in Australia and hosts much of the engineering, manufacturing and mining services industries supporting the wider Mackay-Isaac-Whitsunday economy.

From an engineering and technical employment perspective, Titan Recruitment regularly works with a number of clients in sourcing professionals to drive their operations in the Mackay region.

As a place to live, Mackay offers so much to see and do providing experiences that memories are made of.

Explore the pristine rainforest and swim its freshwater gorges or hike any number of the scenic national parks or catch a ‘barra’ for dinner. A little further afield is the Whitsundays Islands giving you the chance to snorkel or dive the Great Barrier Reef.

You can expect all the conveniences of a big city including a host of educational facilities from preschool through to University, large shopping centres, a marina and a bounty of dining out options.
