Proserpine is found slightly inland, near the mid coast of Queensland. While only a small town, it is the centre for most activity in the area, and is home to the region's hospital, sugar mill, sporting facilities and schools. Settled in the 1880s, the town is surrounded by fertile lands which get plenty of rain each year, making sugarcane farming the town's biggest industry. The town has its own airport, which also services the surrounding towns and destinations, and from which you can collect a hire car on arrival. Auto Europe offers several car hire pick up locations in Australia, and a large fleet selection, so finding a car rental in Proserpine is both easy and economical.
