Great Barrier Reef Arena

The Great Barrier Reef Arena at the Harrup Park Country Club in Mackay is an Australian football and cricket venue with a capacity of 7,500. The ground features a small undercover grandstand with seating for 200 spectators, while temporary grandstands have also been used for larger events. The venue also features a hill and viewing of the oval from the country club. There are plans for a $20m upgrade for the facility to allow more AFL and cricket to be played in Mackay, including the construction of a new grandstand with 2000 covered seats to boost the capacity to over 9,000.

Harrup Park dates back to 1968 and hosted a match during the 1992 Cricket World Cup between India and Sri Lanka, however it was called off after two deliveries due to rain. In recent times, it has hosted pre-season AFL and WBBL matches, while the Gold Coast Suns AFLW team played one home game at the ground. 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.
