"Wouldn't live anywhere else in the Whitsundays."

I recently moved to Proserpine from Cranbourne, Victoria and I am loving Proserpine. I did extensive research before making the move and Proserpine ticked all the boxes. It is so close to all the area has to offer and is the genuine gateway to the region, it is the town you arrive at by air, rail and road and this was a major deciding factor for me. I now have friends and family looking to build in Proserpine and I am glad their is new residential land on the market that is affordable and has great views.

"Have friends that live there now and they love it."

My friends and I recently moved to the area from Sydney, I went to Airlie Beach and them to Proserpine and oh how I wish I too had gone to Proserpine. They find the town extremely welcoming, easy to navigate and love its convenience. It has the best schools in the area, They still visit their home on the North Shore of Sydney regularly and love the short commute to the airport (in Proserpine, not Sydney).

I too have now moved to Proserpine from Airlie Beach and am glad I did, anyone else looking to move to the Whitsundays will be glad they chose Proserpine as well.

"Its on its way"

Proserpine is a town located in the internationally famous Whitsunday Region. It is one of the earliest towns in the area and is home to vital facilities for anyone wishing to enjoy the magnificent Whitsunday lifestyle such as revered schools with proven track records for results and well known alumni, a modern decent sized hospital with a vast array of services, respected childcare providers, highway access, short distance to the soon to be International airport.

It is not hard to see why Proserpine is one of the FASTEST growing towns in the region. Proserpine is centrally located so you can enjoy the beach lifestyle which is a short drive or bus trip away, the picturesque Lake Proserpine with its water sports & its unsurpassed fishing, and if you happen to gain employment within the mining industry Proserpine is a great home base with short commuting times and you get to come home to your friendly town with the idyllic climate perfect after being away and working hard.

Proserpine is a green community with many parks and gardens to relax and unwind in and observe the wildlife or spend the day playing with the kids or exercising its all possible in Proserpine.

You will be amazed at how supportive and friendly this community is with the town winning the friendliest town award and tidy town awards. It is a town where you and your family will thrive and create many happy memories together.

Its time to act and make Proserpine your new home :)

"A great place to live :)"

I love living in Proserpine, the way people greet you everyday with a smile, the people on the street who love to chat, the Proserpine Hospital is one of the best regional Hospitals I have been to in Queensland - it is modern, the staff are wonderful, the care is top notch and the surroundings heaven, the town has a variety of educational institutions from prep all the way to Year 12 either at Proserpine State High with Alumni such as Andrew Fraser (former state Treasuer) & Travis Waddell (professional Rugby League Footballer) to name two.. or Saint Catherine's Catholic school with a state-of-the-art secondary campus opening in 2015. Proserpine is just an all round great authentic town with a bright future.. so why not be a part of it yourself??
Pros
  • Modern Hospital and Schools
  • Beautiful caring residents
  • Lots of flat land for development
  • Clean and Friendly
  • Close to mining areas
  • Diverse range of facilities
  • Very close to Australia's newest International Gateway

"Proserpine - Ideal place in the tropics to buy"

The main industries in Proserpine are sugar cane and cattle, yet Proserpine attracts many tourists each year. Situated on 26 kms from the Whitsundays coast with the beautiful beaches Proserpine is the administration centre for the area. This town has everything to offer both the tourist and resident with good shopping facilities, great schools and hospital and loads of sports venues and playing fields for most sports. There is no end to the accommodation choices on offer as well as restaurant, cafes pubs etc. Take a guided tour of the area or a scenic flight, enjoy the water sports at Airlie Beach or visit Cedar Creek Falls. House prices vary but there are still some very good buys available.
