The streets boast some striking architecture, the Courthouse and Commonwealth Bank, both built in the latter years of the 19th century, are the standouts, but Mackay has an amazing collection of Art Deco buildings too. Harold V.M. Brown designed 13 buildings in the centre of the city between 1930 and 1940 and while walking the streets visitors will notice sunbursts and fountains and other decorative features. The Artspace Mackay is also a standout structure. It’s the modern art gallery that hosts local, national and international exhibitions. The Mackay Regional Botanic Gardens is one of Australia’s newest gardens and it’s a beautiful, natural, enormous garden.
