Fifth Lane

Fifth Lane is located in the heart of the City Centre and is an incredible collection of colourful murals, paste-ups, digital art, and community art forming a 24/7 outdoor art gallery.  What was once a tired and undesirable laneway, is now Australia’s Best Street Art Laneway after recently taking out the GOLD gong in the 2021 Australian Street Art Awards. Notice something different and discover quirky characters each time you walk through as artworks themed by Mackay’s nature and wildlife are hidden high and low.

Enjoy the artworks as they are in their static beauty or see them come alive by interacting with the seven augmented reality experiences.  Simply zap the QR codes located at each artwork and see the artworks come to life on your phone.

The Fifth Lane Street art transformation was completed in 2019 by 16 dedicated and talented local artists and five amazing visiting artists from across Queensland and Australia. In 2021, the Laneway was further revitalised with the installation of a new concrete pavement and festoon lighting

Make sure Fifth lane is on your list to visit when you’re next in the City Centre.
