It appears that VH-NWI arrived into Mackay Airport from these places very late on Tuesday 28 February.

Meanwhile, also on Wednesday 1 March, the Queensland Government Airwing (State of Queensland) Raytheon B300 Super King Air VH-SGQ visited Rockhampton Airport from Brisbane.

The Queensland Police Service (Airwing) (State of Queensland) Raytheon B1900D VH-PSK visited Rockhampton Airport from Cairns and Townsville.

UPDATE!  On Thursday 2 March, VH-PSK visited Rockhampton Airport once again this time directly from and back to Cairns.

Darwin-based Beech 58 Baron VH-LAP flew down from Cairns to Rockhampton Airport and onwards to Redcliffe.  It had flown across from Darwin to Cairns the previous day.

Of interest, VH-LAP was once based at Mackay Airport with the now defunct Reef Airways (Island Air).

ZephAir Australia Piper PA-34-220T Seneca VH-YSI complete aerial survey work on flights from Gladstone Airport to Biloela / Thangool Airport and then Mackay Airport.  It appears to have been operating around Dubbo and then Gladstone and Thangool Airports over the past few weeks.

While Aero Professional Services Piper PA-46-310P Malibu VH-BGK completed a flight from its Emerald base to Archerfield and back.

And Seair Pacific / Istlecote Textron Aviation (Cessna) 208B Caravan VH-TQI flew up from Lady Eilliot Island to Middlemount Aerodrome.  It then flew down to Maryborough Airport and then Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport.

Finally, also on Wednesday 1 March, Baron Capital Cessna 525 Citation CJ1 bizjet VH-TFW was back in the region, flying up to Hamilton Island Airport from Armidale and then heading down to Ballina / Byron Bay Gateway, Bankstown and then Armidale Airports.
