Welcome to the Mackay and District Italian website
We are a Not-For-Profit Community Group researching and recording the history of Italian migration to the Mackay District. In addition, the M&DIAI hopes to rekindle an interest in Italian culture and to celebrate Italian contributions to the wider community.
We are back!
After having to cancel the majority of our events and activities in 2020 we are back and excited to be able to pick up where we left off.
To keep up to date with information in relation to our activities and events please check our website and Facebook page periodically or send us a message.
On behalf of the Association we thank you for your continued support and look forward to catching up with everyone this year!
