Great Barrier Reef Arena

The Great Barrier Reef Arena at Harrup Park in Mackay is an oval sports stadium with a capacity of 10,000. The venue features a new 2,000-seat grandstand completed in March 2023 which also features a media & broadcast centre, community plaza and green, and enhanced facilities for spectators, players, officials and corporates to national and international sporting event requirements. The ground also features a smaller undercover grandstand with seating for 200 spectators, a grass hill and viewing of the oval from the Harrup Park Country Club.

The home of community cricket in Mackay since 1867, and with a clubhouse on the current site since 1962, the venue hosted a particularly memorable match during the 1992 Cricket World Cup between India and Sri Lanka, as it was called off after two deliveries due to rain. In recent times, it has hosted pre-season AFL matches, AFLW matches including regular Gold Coast Suns home games, and WBBL fixtures. Known as Great Barrier Reef Arena since late 2018 due to a commercial naming-rights deal, the venue was previously known as the Ray Mitchell Oval.
