Mackay and Whitsunday Life


Mackay Aquatic and Recreation Complex (ARC) will be closed to the public until further notice.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) was called to the site early this morning after staff noticed a chemical leak in the plant room prior to opening the facility.

QFES is currently investigating the site and have advised that the leak has been contained to the plant room.

However, the ARC will be closed for the remainder of the day so the issue can be rectified.

Council is hopeful that the facility can be reopened tomorrow and will keep the public updated on council’s Facebook page and website.

Residents are also advised that they can use their memberships at Pioneer Swim Centre in North Mackay while Mackay ARC is closed.
