Ayr, which is 89-kilometres southeast of Townsville, is a dynamic town famous for its sugarcane industry and agricultural research (Ayr Research Facility). Its economy is driven by sugar, mung beans, pumpkins, sweet corn, achachas, agave, melons and Cobia (a fish species in demand from high-end restaurants). An innovative local company, KFSU, produces a phytonutrient food called Kfibre – made from sucrose-free sugarcane – which aids digestion and weight loss. In terms of attractions, Ayr is famous for the Stardust Drive-in Cinema, Yongala Dive (at Alva Beach) and the Burdekin Theatre. Ayr has a public swimming pool, a cinema (Burdekin Delta Cinemas), a golf course (Ayr Golf Club), a public library (Burdekin Library) and a 28-bed hospital with helipad.


Ayr is accessible from the south and north via the Bruce Highway. The Spirit of Queensland tilt train (Brisbane to Cairns) stops at Ayr railway station.


A number of major retailers have stores in Ayr: Coles, Woolworths, Supercheap Auto, Target and The Reject Shop.


Ayr is home to a large number of quality schools, including Ayr State School, St Francis School, East Ayr State School, Kalamia State School, Airville State School, Burdekin Special School, Burdekin Christian College, Burdekin Catholic High School and Ayr State High School.
