A very busy airport, Sydney’s Kingsford Smith International Airport (SYD) is just 8km south of the city and accessible by car, train, bus, airport shuttle. Allow up to an hour by car or taxi during peak traffic times or a quick 15 minute ride on the AirportLink train from key stations in Sydney.
The Whitsunday Coast Airport in Proserpine Airport (PPP) is 14km south of town centre, a short 20 minute drive and about 30 minutes from the popular Airlie Beach. Although a small airport, several car rental companies are on site and shuttles and buses are available to both Proserpine and Airlie Beach.
Built on sugarcane and cattle, Proserpine is a small art deco town full of charm and country hospitality. Stop in at the Proserpine Museum which serves as a local cultural centre and history museum or do a spot of shopping at Colour Me Crazy, a treasure trove of unusual clothing, home wares and jewellery from around the world.
Nearby, the spectacular Cedar Falls flow into a cool swimming hole at the base. Enjoy the serenity of this rock amphitheatre amongst the amazing cedars, strangler figs and orchids. At the Peter Faust Dam on Lake Proserpine, fishing enthusiasts can throw in their lines and catch Barramundi, crab, or crayfish. Bring your boats, your crab pots, and camping gear to this popular sports fishing and camping site on the lake.
Just short distances away are the beautiful beaches and tropical islands of the Whitsundays. From Airlie Beach you can sail on a tall ship, explore the reef on a catamaran, or head to the skies for an aerial view of hidden coral lagoons or the famous Heart Reef. Finish off your day at the Airlie Esplanade for some five star dining or finger foods at a wine bar or beer café.
Whether you come to Sydney for its countless festivals, sporting events, or miles of shopping, this modern metropolis of gleaming skyscrapers and the iconic Harbour Bridge welcomes visitors from all over the world.
Come to the city at Christmas and enjoy the gorgeous decorations throughout the city, sing along to carols in The Domain and ring in the New Year with fireworks over Sydney Harbour. Come during rugby season and cheer on your favourite Rugby League team at Sydney Football Stadium. Go next door for an inside tour of the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Shopaholics can look for something special at the vintage boutiques in Paddington or Newton, indulge in high-end brands on Pitt and George streets or wander the markets in the historic Rocks. If you want to be entertained, then you can catch the latest broadway show at Capitol Theatre or a symphony at the Opera House.
Get out and about and visit Taronga Zoo, ride the rollercoaster at Luna Park, or get some fish and chips at Doyles on Watsons Bay. Throughout your stay there is no shortage of eateries from five-star dining to hole-in-the-wall restaurants only the locals know.
With so much to do, you’ll want to come back, so be sure to check tigerair year round for low fares to Sydney and the Whitsunday Coast.
