Do not go past this restaurant!
Nik and the team are The Flack yard are so passionate about not only food but Australian food. They share their knowledge with you with each course. The flavour combinations play on your tongue and leave you wanting more after every bite. I’m so glad we are so lucky to have such a wonderful dinning experience with in our region using so much local Produce to show case our region. This is an experience not a just meal!


Hidden Gem!
Nik and the team have created a one of a kind experience in the Mackay region. Showcasing local produce and an innovative wine list that takes your on a delicious journey which you can only walk away with a huge smile and a contented belly. Five stars from start to finish.


Just experienced the best taste bud experience for a long time!


An amazing experience. Food was delicious and loved hearing the story behind every dish. Highly recommend


An absolutely amazing experience


Fine dining finally comes to Mackay
I have lived in Mackay for 8 years and the one thing the area lacks, until at least Townsville, is fine dining and great service. Well not anymore! Nick and Mark have bought their dream to life and called it The Flackyard. This incredible restaurant offers 3 to 10 course meals, with the option to pair drinks with each course (the home made cider is a must). The only thing that matches the food is the service. Chef Mark, not only prepares all courses with love and care, but hand delivers them to your table and describes them in detail with passion. By the time you finish the 10 course degustation you will feel like a part of the family. Can hardly wait for our next experience!


Best dining experience we have ever experienced. Will be recommending to everyone. Great team and great food

Love, love , love
Spent my birthday here with family, fabulous food, service, simply the best night, Nik and his staff excel


You must dine here
The Flackyard is a surprise packet hidden away in the beautiful Pioneer Valley. Chef Nik and his team will delight your taste buds with their creative bush tucker inspired fine dining. If that wasn’t enough the presentation and theatre of this dining experience will leave you feeling so good. Paired with some fantastic Australian wines, do yourself a favour and dine at the Flackyard
