Mackay Waterfront Priority Development Area (PDA)

The Mackay Waterfront is set to be a game changer for the region.

The Mackay Waterfront Priority Development Area (PDA) was declared on May 25, 2018 to kick start this visionary project that will unlock the true value of Queenslands Bluewater Edge and transform the city.

Boasting a diverse strong economy, the Mackay region has experienced the most prolonged period of growth in recent history. Mackay has established itself as a modern, regional city, with low unemployment, a wonderful lifestyle and endless opportunities.

The vision for the project builds on Mackay’s exceptional natural, cultural and heritage assets.

Complementing the diverse mix of activities and attractions of the city centre the project and policy framework supports the intended development and community outcomes for the area.

The PDA provides opportunities to:

  • redevelop the Pioneer River and Binnington Esplanade waterfronts
  • establish a precinct for innovation and knowledge based industries
  • promote the City centre as a key business hub
  • provide exciting and activated streets, places and attractions
  • improve the city's liveability, tourism appeal and investment attraction
  • advance and strengthen the region’s economy
  • establish a must-see Queensland waterfront and tourist destination
  • increase investor confidence and development in the region
  • build the regions sustainability and resilience
