Dining Out

The region offers many different dining experiences, with everything from fish and chips on the beach, to five-star indulgence. Restaurants and resorts cater to every taste, including fresh local seafood, Mexican, Italian, Asian, European and modern Australian.



Sunday afternoon entertainment on Airlie's "eat street", the Esplanade, has become popular and the service, in typical Airlie Beach style, is always friendly. Many restaurants also feature wine bars and beer cafes, as well as live music and entertainment to keep you partying all night.


Sunset Cocktails

You will be spoilt for choice on locations to sit back and watch the sunset. From the balcony of your accommodation, onboard your bareboat, or from one of the many restaurants that offer expansive views over The Whitsundays, each one with its own charm, be sure to have a drink in hand as you watch the drop below the horizon!
