By Community, For Community
Harrup Park has been a vital part of life in the Mackay region for over three decades.
Great Barrier Reef Arena builds on that foundation to create a multi-use events,
recreation and leisure precinct that will serve community for generations to come.
Unlike some sporting venue development projects, the Great
Barrier Reef Arena precinct is also designed to provide an
outstanding year-round community activity destination.
The new green spaces, events facilities and leisure zones are
complemented by ﬁve community sports ﬁelds and Harrup Park
Country Club’s award-winning dining and entertainment facilities.
A Place for All to Enjoy
The new precinct creates a wonderful new community
gathering place and key Mackay location for markets, festivals,
concerts, performances and exhibitions.
Precinct design has a primary focus on providing open green
space and connected walkways, capitalising on natural amenity
and maximising community access at all times of year.
