Backpackers & Hostels

For convenient, comfortable and affordable accommodation in the Whitsundays, see a wide range of options below to make the most of your holidays. With 74 island wonders and the Great Barrier Reef at your doorstep to explore, you'll love every second of your trip to the Whitsundays. Airlie Beach has a number of accommodation options which will help stretch your dollar further, and an abundance of adrenalin-pumping experiences on offer. And after a great day of activities, make the most of the vibrant Airlie Beach nightlife any night of the week!   

When you're not sailing, diving, snorkelling or visiting one of the other islands that are just off the coast, Airlie Beach and the mainland has lots to keep you busy. Or you can simply relax and hang out at the Airlie Beach Lagoon - an enormous, free, swimming pool built right on the water's edge in the centre of town.

Work

Looking for harvest work to extend your visa? You're in luck. The Whitsundays include the town of Bowen, the vegetable and fruit-picking capital of Central Queensland. Check out this website here for information about local harvest jobs to get your funds topped back up again, so you can enjoy another year in paradise. You may also find a job working in Airlie Beach or at one of the resort islands.
