Airlie Beach

Known as the Gateway to the Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef, Airlie Beach is a popular backpackers destination, which means plenty of bars, clubs and, well, backpackers!

From here you can explore any of the Whitsundays’ 74 islands, as well as the iconic Whitehaven Beach and Heart Reef. There are plenty of ways to get around the islands, including sailing, jet-skiing, kayaking, jet-boating or for a different perspective try a scenic plane or helicopter.

Casual dining, nightlife, shopping and relaxation are all within easy reach in Airlie Beach, so if you’ve done Cairns and the Goldie, why not try Airlie?
