Airlie Beach

As the gateway to Queensland’s magnificent Whitsunday Region, Airlie Beach is considered among the best holiday destinations in the world today.

Located some 280km south of Townsville and 1100km to the north of Brisbane, Airlie Beach is central to the Whitsunday chain of Islands just off the coast of Queensland and affords travellers a great opportunity to explore these islands as well as many other attractions throughout the local region.

A short drive from Proserpine on the National Highway, visitors enter Airlie Beach via neighbouring Cannonvale, as the road climbs above the Abel Point Marina you will feel inspired by the expansive views of the glorious coastline.

The stunning blue ocean in the foreground and a backdrop of distant islands on the horizon will take your breath away, and you won’t be able to avoid the feeling of excitement you will get as you realise that your Queensland Holiday has really begun.

Wander around the streets of this quaint little village or take a relaxing break at the edge of the enormous public lagoon. Set in tropical landscaped parkland, the lagoon overlooks the magnificent bay and provides a stinger free (no jellyfish) environment. Ideal for the kids too as the lagoon is patrolled by lifeguards and has a children’s pool as well.

Airlie Beach Shopping areas are open seven days a week and the town also boasts all the essential services that you might need. Dining options in Airlie Beach cover every conceivable taste and budget requirement.

Every Saturday you will find that the foreshore parkland morph’s into a bustling market area offering fresh fruit and vegetables, local arts and crafts right under the shade of the palm trees.

Not forgetting the famous nightlife of Airlie Beach, clubs and bars abound and with many visitors in party mode, continue on to the wee hours with music and live entertainment.

Airlie Beach has the inviting atmosphere of a small coastal town and yet boasts top quality resort style accommodation as well as more modest options such as backpacker hostels for those on a budget.
