East Mackay

East Mackay, a residential area, is immediately east of the city centre and is bounded by the Pioneer River on its north and the Town Beach (Coral Sea) on its east. A small suburb, East Mackay is crossed by drainage canals and the Sandfly Creek which empties into a wetland at the mouth of the Pioneer River.

Some way back from Sandfly Creek there is Queens Park (1886) with Mackay's premier cricket oval and a large orchid house (1988). Just west of the orchid house there is the Victoria Park primary school (1926), and to the north the Siege of Tobruk monument.
