MACKAY'S beaches will be better than ever thanks to a helping hand from rail company Aurizon.
Mackay Surf Lifesaving Club has a new tractor after their successful application to Aurizon's Disaster Round of its Community Giving Fund.
Following Cyclone Debbie, the beaches at Mackay Harbour were covered in debris and volunteers had a big clean-up on their hands.
"The amount of rubbish on the beach... it was just too much for the club to clean up with the old tractor, it was really on its last legs,” club president Rod Leach said.
With the tractor unavailable, volunteers had to bring their own cars down the beach to assist with the clean-up.

On Tuesday, Ed McKeiver, of Aurizon, officially handed over the new tractor, which Mr Leach said "couldn't have come at a better time”.
Mr Leach said a tractor is probably the most used item at the club and a welcome addition.
It's not the first time Aurizon has helped the club. They upgraded the first-aid room in 2013, Mr Leach said.
"Their continual support has been tremendous.”
