Scots once again gathered under sunny skies in Mackay, Queensland for the Mackay Scottish Bluewater Fling held at Mackay’s Bluewater Quay. The free community event included pipe bands, entertainers, Clan groups, Scottish dancers and a ceilidh.
The Bluewater Fling is organised by the Mackay & District Pipe Band who have been bringing the rich sound of the pipes and drums to the people of the Mackay region since 1926. In honour of the founder of its home city, John Mackay from Inverness, the band proudly wears the crest and ancient tartan of Clan Mackay.
