Wartime History
During the WWII, the United States Army Air Force established rest and recreation facilities in Mackay. From the end of January 1943 until early 1944, thousands of United States servicemen were ferried almost daily from New Guinea to Mackay by air to spend roughly ten days rest and recuperation (R&R) in the vicinity.
