ACCOMMODATION
As this is a long weekend lifters need to make sure they get accommodation as early as possible. The competition is being held in Proserpine which is 26km from the heart of Airlie Beach. There are transport options available between the 2 locations.

Proserpine accommodation (within walking distance to the competition venue)

  • A & A Motel – 0749451888
  • Proserpine Reef Gardens Motel – 07 49451288
  • Whitsunday Palms Motel – 07 49451868

Airlie Beach Accommodation (there are hundreds of choices in Airlie Beach but I recommend the following due to reasonable prices). It is highly recommended people stay at Airlie Beach despite transport costs to the venue as there are many restaurants, beach, swimming and tourist attractions. All accommodation is currently booking out quite quickly for that long weekend.
