Airlie Beach

With its gorgeous outlook over the bays and islands, and the tropical feel of an island resort, Airlie Beach is the perfect base for your next holiday to the Whitsundays. The largest town on the Whitsunday Coast and the main point of access to the islands and the Great Barrier Reef by day, Airlie Beach is a thriving hub which offers a vibrant array of dining and nightlife, shopping and relaxation. 

Airlie Beach boasts a broad array of accommodation from stylish 5 star resort hotels on the water's edge and apartments on the hillside overlooking the panorama of beach, bay and islands, to bed and breakfast options, motels, camping and caravan parks as well as backpacker accommodation. The town easily achieves the perfect balance between all of these styles, with all accommodation houses taking maximum advantage of the stunning views, and the village atmosphere unifying travellers of all budgets together in the same relaxed, holiday feel. 

Airlie Beach offers freedom of choice and flexibility with the majority of tours and activities based out of the town centre or Port of Airlie to the south and Abell Point Marina to the north. You can choose between activities as diverse as sailing, bareboating, kayaking, jetskiing, jetboating, scenic flights, snorkelling, scuba diving, crocodile spotting, 4WD tours, mountain biking, bushwalking, segway tours, camping, hiking, golf, shopping, relaxation and much more!

Just minutes from Airlie Beach, discover quiet coves, beaches and rainforest, and a diversity of green landscapes which contrast perfectly with the myriad blues of the ocean. Conway National Park is one of the best kept secrets of the Whitsunday Coast and Hinterland, with numerous walking trails and scenic lookouts which wind through rainforest, Australian bushland and seasonal waterfalls such as the stunning Cedar Creek Falls.

Situated on the coast with the stunning mountainous backdrop of Conway National Park, Airlie Beach is a cosmopolitan town with a variety of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.

You can chill out at the renowned Airlie Lagoon during the day and enjoy the famed nightlife when the sun goes down.
A choice of four beaches means there’s always somewhere to ‘get lost’ and you can enjoy a gentle stroll along the Bicentennial Boardwalk. Make sure you also sample the excellent dining options available.
