Proserpine is a town in Whitsunday Region in the state of Queensland, Australia. It is situated on the Bruce Highway. It was founded in the 1890s. At the 2011 census, Proserpine had a population of 3,390. Proserpine is an anchor for the Whitsundays region, providing some key infrastructure, including the rail station, the mainland airport for scheduled jet services, two high schools, the hospital and other vital services. It lies around 26km inland from Airlie Beach on the Bruce Highway, and it has grown since its foundation in the 19th century due to the success of its sugar and cattle industries. The demonym of Proserpine is Proserpinian.The town is located along the banks of the Proserpine River and is surrounded by vast flat areas of land primarily used for cane farming. It prides itself on its friendly atmosphere and in 2007 it won the Tourism Queensland Friendliest town award. In recent years the town has started to grow again after almost 2 decades of stagnation. This growth is being driven by Proserpine's affordability compared to other locations in the region and its strategic position in relation to transport infrastructure. The town is being promoted as a viable place for workers from the mines in the Bowen Basin to live who engage in the Fly-in fly-out practice. Currently there are a number of infrastructure projects underway in the town to cater for this growth most notably the construction of the Water treatment plant on Pound Yard Road. The plant is being constructed by Lend Lease Infrastructure company Abigroup.
