Hop aboard The Reef Trail at our official launch event, Embark!

Join us on Fri 5 July at Red Dog Brewery in Mackay as we come together for a free, all-ages launch party with live music from singer-songwriter Will Blume. This is a great opportunity to meet and mingle with your fellow Reef Trail-Goers before we set sail on The Reef Trail.

Not only is Red Dog Brewery famed as the most-loved watering hole in town, it’s also a stomping ground for local musicians, making it the perfect spot to kick off our music adventure.

Enjoy delicious pizza, wine, spirits, cocktails and of course, Mackay’s finest brews, and raise your glass to the amazing experiences that lie ahead on The Reef Trail.
