North Mackay

North Mackay, immediately across the Pioneer River from the central city area of Mackay, expanded from a few thousand people in 1950 to several suburbs by 2000. The main suburbs are Mount Pleasant, Andergrove, Beaconsfield and Glenella (see separate entries). Mackay Harbour to the east adjoins the outer harbour opened in 1939. North Mackay is ringed by these suburbs and was part of Pioneer Shire until the shire was amalgamated with Mackay City in 1994.
