Landmarks

Mackenzie is home to Mount Petrie, which is named after the explorer Thomas Petrie. The 170-metre mountain is sometimes called Petrie Hill. The southern peak of Mount Petrie has a deserted triangulation station with a radio tower ruin. A trig tower for taking bearings and measurements can be found at the top of the mountain. The top also offers a spectacular view of Brisbane and Moreton Bay. The bushland close to the mountain is a sanctuary for koalas, wallabies and echidna colonies.

There is one school in Mackenzie, namely, the Mount Petrie State School. There are two churches, the Wesleyan Southgate Church and a Baptist church; and one petrol station. There is no large or small shopping centre. Shopping is done in Wishart.
