Airlie Beach is located in spectacular Queensland, Australia, and is a starting point for the famous Whitsunday Islands as well as being a popular tourist destination itself. It has a far wider number of accommodation options than the Whitsunday islands, particularly for the low budget to middle range visitor, and some lively entertainment options as well.
The town of Airlie Beach is especially well-liked by backpackers, but there is some top-notch value resort and apartment-style accommodation to be enjoyed as well – and at a portion of what you would pay on the Whitsunday Islands. There is a far better choice of locations to dine, and costs are additionally much lower than the nearby islands such as Hamilton Island or Hayman Island. And Airlie Beach has become somewhat famous for it’s thriving nightlife: if you love to party, you can discover plenty of spots to do so.
Most Whitsunday visitors staying in Airlie Beach still wish to get to see some of the Whitsunday Islands, and it is simple to do so. There are daily ferries to the main islands, and quite a bit of tours that will take you out for a day tour and visit some of the most popular spots in the Whitsundays. Of course, if there are particular places you wish to see, it’s also possible to charter a boat – with or minus a crew.
Airlie Beach is also a favourable place to book any activities you may be curious in, and with more competition between tour operators in the Whitsundays, again the prices are better. You can book a helicopter for an memorable birds-eye perspective of the Whitsundays, or for the really adventurous, a skydive may just be the ultimate experience. Diving courses are highly popular with visitors to Airlie Beach, and give you the chance to see some of the Great Barrier Reef sea-life up close.
