Visit Airlie Beach - Best of Airlie Beach
The town where everyone appears to be on perpetual holiday, Airlie Beach tourism with its white sands, famous manmade lagoon, numerous resorts and a host of tourist attractions is a holidaymaker’s paradise. This bustling town in Queensland is the gateway to The Great Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Islands. The place was once popular with backpackers looking for an offbeat holiday, soon it was discovered by other travellers from all over the world and Australia, and is now a thriving, commercial tourist destination.
Airlie Beach tours include a host of fun activities for tourists looking to relax, enjoy water sports and cruises to the Whitsunday Islands or diving in The Great Barrier Reef. The waters off the coast are inhabited by the box jellyfish. This makes swimming from November to May impossible here. To resolve this, the local council built a swimming lagoon for tourists, which is one of the top tourist attractions on the Airlie Beach travel guide.
On Airlie Beach every night feels like a Saturday night, the numerous bars, clubs and dining options are all buzzing with people and activity throughout the week. The town’s accommodations range from hotels, resorts and backpacker hostels suited to every budget.
