Situated on Queensland’s Whitsunday Coast, Airlie Beach is often referred to as a gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. It is much more than that however, boasting some great resorts, restaurants and nightlife. A recently developed lagoon on the Esplanade of Airlie Beach has enhanced its reputation as a resort town suited to all types of travelers, from backpackers, to families and those seeking an upmarket stay.
Airlie Beach is easily accessible with flights into Proserpine Airport and is also a popular destination for those travelling by road between Brisbane and Cairns.
With two main departure points to the Great Barrier Reef, Abell Point Marina and Port of Airlie, there are a range of cruises available. These include fast boats to Whitehaven Beach, island cruises and transfers as well as large day boats going to outer reef pontoons. There are also a number of options for day and overnight sailing cruises.
For those seeking added adventure there are scenic flights available from the nearby Whitsunday Airport, with the possibility of a seaplane landing on Whitehaven Beach. Skydiving and jetski tours are also available. For those who want to stay on dry land there are day trips to experience crocodiles in their native habitat.
