Mackay Airport Beach Horse Races - The Galley

Mackay Airport Beach Horse Races - The Galley

The annual Mackay Airport Beach Horse Racing Festival is an iconic event on North Queensland’s sporting and social calendar.

While the showpiece of this three-day Festival is the Mackay Airport Beach Race Day attended by more than 3000 locals and visitors to the region, the Festival also features more.

Named as one of the Top 10 Social Events in Queensland by the Sunday Mail, the Festival has also reached ‘hallmark’ event status with Tourism and Events Queensland, acknowledged for contributing to the social fabric and economic prosperity of the Mackay Region.

This year’s Race Day will feature eight exciting horse races on one of Queensland’s most picturesque beaches.

The event is designed to cater to both visitors and locals offering very unique event experiences.

These include the very reasonable and family friendly general admission area, the Beach Beer Garden, the exclusive Sand Bar right in the heart of the racing, and the premium Pope Deck which is Mackay’s answer to The Bird Cage at Flemington.
