    Good/bad areas in Mackay/Yeppoon ?

    Mackay is a fantastic place to retire to. I have lived here for over 40 years, so I guess I am kind of an expert. By all means, come over to check it out! The mining boom may be over, but the long time locals like it like that. Hopefully our city will return to the picturesque, vibrant and...
