Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Mount Pleasant Centre

Mount Pleasant Centre took home the gold in the Mackay Isaac Tourism Awards for ‘Excellence in the Retail/Hire Services’ category.

MTP have worked diligently over recent years to define themselves as a community centre, with retailers catering to all needs from food to clothing and homewares.

The recent win has alluded that the Centre has plenty to offer both locals and visitors to our region, priding itself on holding community engagement at the forefront.

Two years ago, the Centre was bought by Fawkner Property with supporting the local community as a key pillar of the business, which has been shown through hosting regular events and community partnerships, such as NQ Rockin’ Country, Mackay Motor Show and Mackay Festival of Arts.

Mount Pleasant Centre offers unique experiences for all visitors, providing free or low-cost indoor activities and events.

The Centre partners with local charitable organisations to support them in their fundraising efforts, with events to promote these groups and help to raise vital funds.

Centre Manager Cathy Sullivan stated that the win brought ‘an extra smile to the already wonderful staff’, commenting, “We are honoured to have received this award from Mackay Isaac Tourism. The award recognises all that Mount Pleasance Centre has to offer for our local community and visitors to the region.”

The next six months will see new retailers joining the MTP family, offering even more variety for a one-stop shopping experience. Christmas is set to be bigger and better this year, so keep an eye out for upcoming details.
