Proserpine is a small rural town situated on the Whitsunday Coast, just south of Bowen. The pretty town offers a cultural hall, small park and large Sugar Mill. Pioneer Park is located just in front of the Sugar Mill , on the way into the town.

Proserpine's climate is typical of North Queensland and consists of two main seasons. The "Wet Season" (Nov-Apr) and The "Dry Season" (May-Nov). Thunderstorms are common during the wet season and clear days during the dry season.
