Airlie Beach Lagoon - Review

The most popular attraction in Airlie Beach is the manmade lagoon in the heart of the town. The local council, to resolve the problem posed by box jellyfish and other marine stingers in the water that prevented swimming, created it as a safe swimming zone. The lagoon is surrounded by ideal spots for sunbathing, a children’s play area and pool, shaded picnic spots and a sandy stinger-free beach. With no admission fee and open to public 24 hours a day, the lagoon is ideal for a day of fun and relaxation.

Airlie Beach Lagoon, Airlie Beach Reviews

  • Excellent free public swimming area. Clean water and plenty big enough for a decent swim. Lots of room in shallows for kids. Some shade but could do with some more. Limited change facilities but otherwise an excellent facility.

  • This is a must go!! We enjoyed the lagoon and almost visited this everyday during our stay in Airlie.. The water is clean and warm!! Though it is a public lagoon it is not crowded and is obviously super amazing!!

  • A terrific (free) and fun day out for everyone! With the sun shining and the music blaring (the radio from the nearby megaphones council has set up tuned to Star 101.9), it’s a much safer alternative to swimming in Airlie Beach itself

  • Great place! So beautiful. If you want to hang out and have a swim, this is the place.

  • AIRLIE LAGOON – Fun for all the family – backpackers too After we had completed a nearby 5km boardwalk trail, we stopped here for a few hours to have a swim and rest. There are plenty of clean toilets, changing rooms, showers and seating, together with picnic tables and BBQ’s. There is a children’s lagoon with shaded canopy area, and play park. There is a larger pool with varying depths, which go under a small bridge. There are also separate swim lanes running down the middle, all watched over by several lifeguards. This is all surrounded with cast concrete which makes it look like a beach and then bordered by lots of grass, right beside the sea. We had a great three or four hours swimming and reading books that afternoon and didn’t even feel out of place as it gradually topped up with more and more young people.
