Located just 88 km south of Townsville on the Bruce Highway, Ayr is a town that punches well above its weight, with a locally owned weekly newspaper to match.
Ayr Rotary is part of Rotary International, the largest service organisation in the world, with over 1.2 million members. We are very active in the local community. Our mission is to enjoy “fun and friendship while helping others”. At Ayr Rotary, you choose how much effort you want to put in, whilst enjoying the friendly banter at our weekly meetings.
The Burdekin Shire Council welcomes the opportunity to support community events and acknowledges the economic benefits events, such as the Burdekin Water Festival, bring to our beautiful region. The Burdekin's plentiful supply of water has lead to the region being one of the more prosperous rural communities in the country. The Burdekin may have been built on sugar cane, but also is home to a wide variety of crops such as rice, vegetables and fruit. Taste the sweet life, visit the Burdekin.
