Ayr and Home Hill Queensland, Australia

Ayr is on the north side of the Burdekin River and Home Hill is on the south side. Ayr is approximately 88km south of Townsville; Home Hill is 1270 km north of Brisbane. The Burdekin River is very wide, prone to dramatic flooding. To ensure that Ayr and Home Hill are not cut off during the wet season, a remarkable 1097m long bridge known as the ‘Silver Link’  was constructed in 1958. Sugar cane and mangoes are grown in this region.
