Gateway to the Whitsundays
Very much a town with an emphasis on the tropical lifestyle, Airlie Beach offers exotic surroundings with palm trees and charming, sandy beaches. This town of approximately 8,000 lies a short trip away from the spectacular Whitsunday Islands. Often used as a starting point for exploration of the Great Barrier Reef, the friendly, down-to-earth charisma of Airlie Beach holds plenty of attraction in itself.
