Airlie Beach Lagoon
The Airlie Beach Lagoon is situated right in the centre of Airlie Beach and has become the focal point of the area. When you want to meet someone you meet "at the Lagoon". If you want a great day of relaxation with no admission fee "spend a day at the Lagoon".
It's not every day that a town gets a new beach, but Airlie Beach is proud to announce the opening of the brand new Boathaven Beach! Part of the new Port of Airlie development, Boathaven Beach is situated on the new peninsula known as The Beacons, and boasts 60,000 cubic metres of soft, white sand, a northerly aspect and is the area's first true all-tide beach.
Honey Eater Walk
If it’s a spectacular view you’re after – beginning off Kara Crescent – is the Honeyeater Lookout hike. Though the hike is difficult at stages, this four hour return trip is well worth the effort as upon reaching the summit hikers are rewarded with aerial views of Airlie Beach out to the Whitsunday Islands.
Airlie Beach Market
The Lions Airlie Beach Community Markets are located on the foreshore of Airlie Beach, every Saturday morning. Complete with local produce, art, craft and all locally made souvenirs, it is a great place to spend some time, have a coffee or purchase a unique gift.
Meander along the Bicentennial Boardwalk to Cannonvale Beach, taking in the magnificent views across the Coral Sea, with the bonus of coffee stops along the way.
The Whitsundays is one of Australia’s premier angling destinations. With its 74 tropical islands, saltwater creeks and estuaries, rivers, and freshwater lakes, it really is a versatile fishing spot. With a huge variety of fishing locations comes an even wider variety of species to catch! You’ll be spoilt for choice in The Whitsundays.
Airlie Beach is the Heart of Adventure, known for its stunning scenery, vibrant town centre and action-packed activities. To one side, the coastline is bordered by the Great Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Islands, offering stunning views of the Coral Sea and to the other, the rich, rainforest-clad hills of the Conway National Park.
The town offers a range of activities for visitors, from sailing and snorkelling to hiking and shopping. Airlie Beach also boasts a lively bar and restaurant scene, with plenty of options to enjoy a night out with friends or family.
