Downloading the package for JIRA software gives the option to download for MAC but the download will give a .tar.gz file and no instructions for MAC are provided in the subsequent Confluence page.

My apologies, yes, I should have said you need to follow the tar.gz route. I don't know if the installer binaries work on a Mac, I haven't tried them on one recently (I use the tar.gz or Adaptavist scripts!)
With the tar.gz installation, you should unzip it somewhere that you want to run it, I then tend to edit the jira-application.properties file under /<install>/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes to set a "home" directory, then go into /bin and run start-jira.sh - that should get you to a running JIRA with the initial setups
