Welcome to the Homepage of the 
Mackay Historical Society
and Museum Incorporated. 

The Mackay Historical Society was formed after a meeting of a group of Mackay District citizens with an interest in preserving the unique history of the region.

The aims of the society are to:-

  • The study of the history of Mackay and adjacent Districts.
  • The collection and preservation of written and printed records of all kinds, and the preservation of other materials of historical interest or value.
  • The publication of historical documents and early records of general public interest.
  • The publication of Bulletins or proceedings of the Society.
  • The inspection, indexing and collating of public records and registers. 
  • The identification and marking of places of historical interest, and their preservation.
  • The raising of funds by public subscription or other means for any or all of the preceding objects.

The society has active interest in the running of Greenmount Historic Homestead as well as the new Mackay Museum.


The Society holds meetings on the first Saturday of each month at 2.00pm. No meetings are held in December and January.

They are held in the museum building in Casey Avenue, South Mackay.  The museum building is located between the Respite Centre and Leisure Court.

Bring along along a plate of goodies for afternoon tea after the meeting for our meet and greet session.
