12 Aug 2023 Annual Event
With the beach horse races as the cornerstone, the surrounding festivities will comprise a variety of other elements, including a pre-event concert, pre-race parade, a variety of packaged VIP food and beverage/premium race-viewing offerings, a European-style Beach Club featuring prominent Australian DJs, post-race Winner’s Circle, Fashions on the Sand, Post-Race After Party, Sunday Recovery Session, market stalls, food trucks and more. Nothing like your average city racing carnival, Mackay Beach Horse Races doesn’t take itself too seriously and offers plenty of local flavour.
It aims to strengthen community spirit, build on regional identity, become an iconic must-do/bucket list Queensland event, and draw extended tourism-based visitation to Mackay from the broader region, intrastate, interstate and abroad.
