A delightful little beach town
If you're staying at an island resort, hop on one of Cruise Whitsundays vessels and take the scenic cruise to the mainland to explore!
About Airlie Beach
Airlie is small and easy to find your way around with the town stretching along one main street and the foreshore park behind the shops. The main street has numerous outlets, boutiques and shops and a diverse range of cafes, bars and restaurants, food courts and takeaways. From seafood and sushi to mexican and mediterranean.
Saturday is Market Day in Airlie Beach with an interesting variety of stalls (7am to 1pm). You could even take a camel ride along the foreshore! If you're travelling with kids, they'll love taking a dip in the fabulous Airlie Beach Lagoon swimming pools for free.
If you want to see a little further, rent a car, moke or scooter… and go exploring. Cedar Creek falls or lunch at the Dingo Beach pub are great options!
Cruise Whitsundays' vessels depart at regular intervals from Daydream and Hamilton Islands to arrive at Airlie Beach. There, what you do for the day is your choice! Relax over a long lunch or get active and see it all. Returning vessels are also regular, throughout the day.
