Huge new Mackay beer garden opens

WHEN it comes to sport and entertainment, Harrup Park's theme is to "go big".

The Juliet Street country club has opened their new outdoor entertaining and venue area Garden Bar, which they claim is the biggest shaded beer garden in Mackay.

The space, which is the first fully completed section of their ongoing major renovation, is situated between fields one and two off the existing back deck.

While the space provides great views of the sporting fields on both sides, to provide even more sporting action the Garden Bar also features the biggest TV in Mackay - a six metre by three metre LED screen.

To celebrate the opening of the new multi-use space, Harrup Park will this weekend show every NRL finals game on the big screen.

Harrup Park marketing manager Adrian Young said the area was a fantastic addition to the club.

"We will utilise the space for major events, sporting and music events," Mr Young said.

The $3.5 million renovation at Harrup Park began in June, with a focus on upgrading the existing facilities to bring the club in line with metropolitan offerings.

Aside from the Garden Bar, other spaces being renovated include the front entrance, the coffee shop, the gaming room and the bar and bistro.
