The bustling coastal village of Airlie Beach serves as the ideal base for exploring the islands, reef, rainforest and wildlife of the Whitsundays.
Situated in tropical North Queensland, Airlie Beach is a year-round destination and boasts an all-ages appeal.
The Airlie Beach Hotel is located at the hub of the Esplanade in the centre of town. From this unrivalled location you can walk to many attractions and within moments join one of the many day tours on offer.
Airlie Beach Hotel General Manager Mark Bell said Airlie Beach was the ideal launching pad for exploring the untouched beauty of the region, such as the islands and reef.
"From Airlie Beach you can set sail into the sunset for a night at sea, you can learn to scuba dive before heading to the reef, you can take a joy flight, or explore the forest and experience local wildlife," Mr Bell said.
"And just when you feel ready to wind down, the nightlife in Airlie winds up and you can party at one of the bars or clubs til you see the sun rise over the sea."
