Ayr is a bustling farming town between Bowen and Townsville at the mouth of the Burdekin river. It doesn’t offer many attractions other than fruit picking work, and with a couple of hostels in town set up to provide cheap workers accommodation, it is a comfortable place to call home for a month or three. The town centre is colourful and compact, with lots of shops and restaurants, and a few pubs where workers hang out on weekends. It is quite far away from anything of real interest to the casual traveller or backpacker, although it is popular with divers who come to dive the wreck of the SS Yongala.
