The 20-year-old made four Super League appearances in 2012 and spent most of the season on a dual registration with Workington but had been due to sign a new deal with Hull KR.
However, he then received an offer from the Queensland Cup-winning Cutters and told the Hull Daily Mail: "It was too good an opportunity to miss and I wondered whether it would ever come round again."
He has agreed a 12-month contract with Mackay, who have also signed Rovers' Australian prop Joel Clinton to play alongside Wales international Neil Budworth.
And full-back Sheriff also turned down a new Hull KR deal in favour of a move to the Brisbane Redcliffe Dolphins, who play in the same league as Mackay.
