It had earlier from Townsville to Cairns and Brisbane before heading back to Townsville via what looked to be a missed approach at Mackay Airport.
Meanwhile, a couple of interesting light General Aviation (GA) aircraft have been noted coming and going from Mackay Airport in recent days with (as mentioned below) Hinterland Aviation Beech B200 VH-HJS calling in from Cairns and departing to Emerald Airport early on Tuesday 26 July as "Hinterland 780".
Also visiting Mackay Airport on Tuesday 26 July was Columbia LC41-550FG VH-LCW which touched down from Archerfield, while locally-based Cessna 206 VH-SMT returned to Mackay Airport from Townsville after heading North on Monday 25 July.
Also flying out of and back to Mackay Airport this week was Beech A36 Bonanza VH-ILG. After flying to the Sunshine Coast over the weekend, it returned to Mackay Airport also on Tuesday 26 July.
VH-ILG notably suffered a landing gear failure while landing at Mackay Airport in late July 2015. It came to rest on the main Runway 14/32, sustaining damage to its propeller and underneath section.

I also recently spotted VH-ILG looking as-good-as-new and parked on the Mackay Airport GA Apron.
Finally, over the last couple of weeks, Toowoomba Based Piper PA-31-350 Navajo VH-TTX has been noted flying between Toowoomba and Mackay and Bowen Airports. On Tuesday 26 July, it flew from Bowen to Mackay.
