During key periods throughout the year, Tourism and Events Queensland (TEQ) conducts advertising campaigns to promote Queensland’s destinations. This is a snapshot of how TEQ communicates the Mackay brand to domestic target markets. 

Brand positioning 

Core promise - what we promise our destination brands will deliver to visitors

Feel the quiet satisfaction of discovering unspoilt nature on a road less travelled.

Brand personality - how our destination brands are portrayed, based on human characteristics

Adventurous, curious, inquisitive, down to earth, unpretentious, not afraid to get a bit dirty, Aussie, patriotic.

Brand values 

Pride in Queensland, authenticity, hospitality, genuine desire to share why we love the area.

Domestic target markets 

The target market for Mackay campaigns is the 'Connector' market. For Connectors, holidays are about bonding with family and friends.
