Mackay Flights

Escape the winter in Australia's southern states by grabbing a seat aboard any of the flights to Mackay, Queensland. Located right on the northern coast between Brisbane and Cairns, Mackay enjoys mild temperatures throughout the entire year. An eclectic array of shops and restaurants populate this city full of palm trees, and the art deco architecture here is unlike anywhere else in Oz. And with dozens of beaches and oodles of outdoor activities, there's never a bad time to travel to this idyllic city.

Best Time to Travel to Mackay

Peak Season:

In the weeks around Easter and from December through mid-January are when most tourists tend to visit Mackay. September is another popular time to visit this region, as temperatures rise to around 25 degrees Celsius and rainfall isn't as frequent as it is during other months of the year.

Shoulder Season:

The shoulder season in Mackay stretches from the middle of January until a few weeks before Easter. It's this time that many visitors consider to be most favourable for venturing here, as it's easier to enjoy attractions and events during these months. Since there are less crowds around this time, you'll have better odds of scoring sweet deals on travel packages.

Off Season:

Tourism generally slows down in this region after the Easter holiday, which typically falls in March or April, and doesn't pick up again until after winter ends. During this time, the city's proximity to the Great Barrier Reef makes for great whale watching, especially amid the annual migration period from July through November. If you’re interested in finding cheap flights to Mackay, this season is likely your best bet.

Mackay Airport and Transfer Information

Mackay Airport (MKY)

Distance: 6 km south of Mackay’s centre

Given that all of Australia’s major airlines operate out of MKY, it’s no surprise that this is one of the fastest growing airports in the country. Upon deplaning, you’ll have a few different options concerning how to get around town. Rent a vehicle with us in advance as many of Australia's most well-known car hire agencies have a presence on the airport’s premises, but a fleet of Mackay Whitsunday Taxis are always available just outside the terminal, too. Greyhound bus lines also make stops here, in case you’re interested in transferring somewhere outside of town.
