ackay Local News is a grass roots, fiercely independent and local newspaper publishing every Friday throughout the Mackay & Isaac Regional Council areas.

Local faces and places, news, views and issues of importance are what you will find in each edition of the Mackay Local News.

Coupled with our paywall-free online news platform we consistently publish the stories that are of interest and importance within sport, community, education, local government, lifestyle, real estate, motoring and business. We proudly provide comprehensive coverage of news and events across our region, and are passionate advocates for the local story of each of our suburbs & townships, covering the issues affecting us all.

Mackay Local News print and online is the genuine sought after source of news, updates and entertainment by locals.

Mackay Local News was established in January 2021, as a response to significant community demand for a truly local community newspaper.
