    There are a few bus services that go from Townsville to the Whitsundays.
    Greyhound, at www.greyhound.com.au

    The Greyhound bus does run but at 5;30 am and we fly in at 8:45 am. I understand the trip i sonly 3 hours but the bus takes 6 hours. Maybe I'll try to rent a car for the day.

    Sorry I can't help anymore, I don't think McCafferty's buses operate anymore. You can fly direct to Whitsundays.

    Do you have to go to Townsville? I am sure Virgin flies into Proserpine which is not far from Airlie and the Whitsundays. You can catch a taxi from the airport.

    yes that was my suggestion as well...if not surely its cheaper to fly from townsville to whitsundays than to hire a car/fuel and time etc..I would check that option out.
