Mackay and Whitsunday Life


Mackay Regional Council's free native plant program gives ratepayers the opportunity to add a native touch to their gardens with the ability to receive up to four free plants of their choice per year.

For those in a rural locality, it’s a good opportunity to get top value locally native plants for your creeklines and windbreak areas.

Simply come along to the Mackay Natural Environment Centre at 6 Swayne Street, North Mackay and bring your rate notice and a bag/box to take your plants home.

Open days:

Friday, August 25, 9am to 3pm

Saturday, August 26, 9am to 12pm

Extra plants can be purchased for $3 each (eftpos only) by ratepayers and non-ratepayers.
