Messengers of Mackay

17 - 25 July

Six giant Gouldian Finches will fly into Mackay to spread messages of hope this July.

Created by internationally renowned artist Florentijn Hofman and brought to life by Brisbane’s Urban Art Projects, these spectacularly coloured birds invite us to look up and smile.

Perched atop Artspace Mackay, Bluewater Quay, Bluewater Lagoon, Rydges Mackay, Caneland Central and Mackay Showgrounds, Messengers of Mackay can be viewed on a leisurely stroll or bike ride.

Learn more about this endangered species through free workshops and activities at Mackay Libraries and Artspace on our website. Party hats are on!

This project is an original commission by Brisbane Festival, supported through the Giving Program by Tim Fairfax AC and Gina Fairfax. The Queensland Government, through Arts Queensland and Tourism and Events Queensland, is proud to support Brisbane Festival, which features on the It’s Live! in Queensland events calendar.
