Best Western planned for Mackay

A plan to build a two-storey, 4½ star budget motel is planned for Mackay’s Harrup Park Country Club football oval.

It will make Harrup Park be the first sporting club in North Queensland to also offer accommodation, according to general manager Michael Jones. The motel will be built on one of the club’s oval
Construction of the yet to be named new motel is expected to start by early next year. Mr Jones said Harrup Park Country Club would not own or operate the 80-room motel but lease the land to developer Bruce McDiarmid of McDiarmid Investments, who would employ the Best Western Hotel Group to operate it.
Mr Jones said, “The main reason for the motel, apart from the added trade we will get out of it, is more about local sport – having accommodation that’s in the area on site. It also would be the closest accommodation to Mackay Airport.”
Stage two will have a sporting centre of excellence, which will include a recovery pool
