The Mackay, Isaac and Whitsunday regions have a strong and diverse economy with an incredible rate of growth in the last two decades. Our region offers a wide span of employment, educational, sporting and cultural opportunities and has been challenged in recent times with mining industry changes and the lack of preparation for future growth.

RDA Mackay-Isaac-Whitsunday is working closely with local business, industry representatives and all levels of government to prepare for a sustainable and positive future for the region.
