"Gateway to the Whitsundays"

Airlie Beach Tourism

The beautiful resort town of Airlie Beach is considered a popular gateway to the Whitsunday Islands. The budget accommodation, relaxed atmosphere and incredible natural beauty makes it a popular spot for backpackers and road-trippers exploring the scenic East Coast of Australia.

The proximity of Airlie Beach to the fascinating Great Barrier Reef and gorgeous Whitsunday Islands give it one of the prettiest coasts in Queensland. The Airlie Beach Lagoon is the perfect spot to enjoy some poolside fun while looking out onto the beautiful Coral Sea and the rugged coastline. It is also a hub for adventure activities, with sailing and skydiving being offered around every corner. Visitors also have the option to cruise to the nearby Whitsunday Islands or take a scenic flight over the area. The large number of backpackers make this a lively town, with the Main Street of Airlie Beach being where the excitement is located, with a range of restaurants, bars and beer gardens to satisfy travellers of all kinds. The beauty of Airlie Beach and the Whitsunday Coast can truly be appreciated from the Honeyeater Lookout on the outskirts of the town.
