Although winter is cooler and less humid, the temperatures stay warm day and night. It can get quite cool if a cold front system passes through.
The town is a popular travel destination especially with backpackers. From November to May, the seas are populated with unpleasant stinging jellyfish, which means that swimming at airlie Beach is not recommended. However, to make up for this, there is a lovely man-made lagoon on the Airlie Beach foreshore which holds around 5 million litres of self-chlorinated fresh water, making it a very popular spot for the european backpackers and other visitors to soak up the sun in their tiny bikinis and enjoy their vacation.
