With quirky shops, sugarcane history and easy access to the Whitsunday Islands, Proserpine is the perfect place to begin your journey. Conveniently located on National Highway A1 and the turnoff to Airlie Bay, this little stop-off town has plenty to offer all on its own, like beautiful tree-lined streets and a charming Art Deco downtown area.
You could spend the day just cruising around in the sunshine. And if you have more time, this town named after a Roman goddess won’t disappoint—especially if you book one of Wotif’s Proserpine packages during local events like the Professional Bull Riders show, The Proserpine Show or the Harvest Festival.
Ready for quaint pubs, fresh-baked treats or shops full of jewellery and gifts? Then cruise down Main Street in a ride from one of our Proserpine car hire options. Many of the Art Deco buildings still proudly display names like Ironside, Foxlee and Hewitt, hinting at a history that’s still alive in the local culture today.
Learn more about that history by pointing your wheels toward the Historical Proserpine Museum. Need to kill some time before you check into hotels in Proserpine? We’ve never heard a better excuse to tee off at the Proserpine Golf Club.
Where should you take your Proserpine car rental to get your Whitsundays adventure started? Airlie Beach is just 25km away. Want to enjoy a natural paradise right on the mainland? Check out Conway National Park, 25km east, and enjoy views of the islands from a walk-in bush camp. Can’t resist the pull of the Great Barrier Reef? Drive 130km down to Mackay and hop on a boat. Tell Nemo we said hello.
