But where should I stay?
Sometimes, when we attend an event, we have to book accommodation, and the range of options can seem rather bewildering.
Should we look for a pool, do we need a big room, or would it be best to be close to the event we are attending.
If you are currently searching for where to stay when you come to Mackay, have a look at some of these options to see if one may suit you.
Rydges Suites is in the city and close to the MECC, which is the conference venue. https://www.guestreservations.com/mackay-grande-suites/booking?msclkid=79bd95a289ce15d6f094f5fd87ee6015
Lanai Apartments are a good option if you would like to cater for yourself and they are close to the fabulous Bluewater lagoon pool complex (which has free admission) https://www.lanaiapartments.com.au/
Mackay Oceanside Central is another option close to the MECC https://www.mackayoceansidecentral.com.au/
Or you may like the idea of a holiday park, with cabins, a pool and some space to move around https://www.big4.com.au/caravan-parks/qld/mackay/mackay-marine-tourist-park
