Well here we are in Mackay, Queensland, Australia. A very pleasant, easy going place with sky-rocketing rents and streets full of potholes. The place is buzzing with activity due to the resources boom, yet it does not have that wild west feel to it.
There are more flash V8 utes per capita than anywhere else in the country and whoever makes “flouro” shirts is making a fortune,
However, it is one of the freindliest places I have ever lived in and there is definitely a slower pace here, which is certainly not a criticism. It just needs two things, more people and more accomodation. Oh and the potholes fixed too.
