Airlie Beach, an Australian seaside town in Queensland
Airlie Beach is the gateway to the Whitsundays, Queensland’s pristine 74 islands. It is a cosmopolitan seaside town dotted with swaying palms, waterfront parks and alfresco dining restaurants.
It is the epitome of a beach town; you’ll instantly feel the carefree and relaxed attitude emanating from every space.
Relax on the manicured lawns of Airlie Beach Lagoon, a manmade saltwater swimming area surrounded by sand and grassy knolls, where backpackers and travellers lounge away the day in the sun.
Visit beachside parks where afternoon barbecues proliferate and continue into the evening hours. Or enjoy alfresco dining restaurants where fresh seafood overflows from every dish.
But once the sun sets, another ambiance embraces the town. You’ll find a thriving energy exuding from the bars and nightclubs where backpackers and travellers party together well into the night. This energy is both contagious and irresistible, and often encourages travellers to stay longer than first expected.
