The Rotary Club of Mackay inc.

The City of Mackay Australia has a lot of history with the people of Vanuatu and we are proud to have a large population of South Sea Islanders living in our city. Many of these residents can trace their ancestors back to the Islands of Vanuatu who were brought to Queensland to work in our Sugarcane Industry. The Rotary Club of Mackay is supporting the country that supplied the workers that helped to build our great city.
