Ayr

Situated on the northern approach to the Burdekin Bridge, 85 kilometres south of Townsville, with more than 300 glorious sunny days each year, the district truly is the winterless north. The natural beauty of the rivers, creeks, estuaries lined with unspoiled mangrove and miles of sandy beaches make the area a mecca for fishing, crabbing, windsurfing and water skiing.

Said to be 'built on liquid gold' because it is situated on a vast natural underground aquifer which is artificially replenished with water from the Burdekin Falls Dam. The district is Australia's richest sugar producing area and also the mango and melon capital.

It is a bird watcher's paradise with 280 species of birds recorded. To view the vast flat farmlands and wetlands of the Burdekin district the best vantage points are from the lookouts of Mount Inkerman and Mount Kelly. The spectacular Burdekin Bridge is known as the silver link and was the longest bridge in Australia for many years. It is the district's best known landmark.

The district is well served by all forms of accommodation and eating places to suit all tastes and budgets and is renowned for its friendly service. There is a diversity of sporting, cultural and tourist facilities and be sure to visit the Ayr Nature Display, the Burdekin Theatre and see the mighty Burdekin River Irrigation Area.
