Growing cooler, greener and connected neighbourhoods

Greener neighbourhoods are cooler in summer, are more attractive places to walk and cycle, they deliver a daily dose of nature closest to where we live, work and play, and offer many other benefits.

We received positive community feedback from our recent Mackay urban greening survey that showed overwhelming support for planting more trees in our region. We also heard that people would like to be kept up to date on our greening activities and participate in planting events. This web page has been created to do just that.

    Our Free Native Plant Program is running on Friday, April 1, from 9am to 3pm and Saturday, April 2, from 9am to noon at the Mackay Natural Environment Centre (MNEC), located at 6 Swayne Street, North Mackay.

    If you are a ratepayer you can collect four free plants each calendar year. Simply bring your latest rates notice along and choose four plants from our range. Additional plants can be purchased for $2.80 each (eftpos only).

    Local native plants are not only beautiful but they thrive in our climate and require less water than other non-native species.

    Pioneer Catchment & Landcare Group Inc. will also be running nature craft and nature hunt activities each day.
