Situated on the north side of the mighty Burdekin River, 85 kilometres south of Townsville, the prosperous rural community of Ayr is the main town in the Burdekin Shire.
Living in Ayr or Home Hill you can discover the friendly residents and laid-back atmosphere of a farming community. With tree-lined main streets, ease of parking, great cafes and restaurants, host of specialty stores, shady parks and excellent public amenities, Ayr and Home Hill make a great place to build a home for you and your family.
Ayr and Home Hill lie just 12km apart and are linked by the landmark Burdekin River Bridge. The Burdekin is famous for its wealth of water. Local farms are drought-proof because of the mighty Burdekin River, the huge reserves of the Burdekin Falls Dam and a massive underground aquifer lying just below the surface. This ‘liquid gold’ allows Burdekin farmers to produce the biggest and sweetest sugar cane in Australia, as well as mangoes, melons, capsicums, zucchinis, tomatoes and many other small crops.
By far the district’s greatest claim to fame is its fishing. The district has one of the highest rates of boat ownership, so if you’re thinking of building in Ayr, consider a space for your future boat!
