The Area: Airlie Beach, Queensland
Rising out of azure waters in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, the Whitsunday Islands is famed for pure white powder sand, untouched vegetation and plentiful snorkeling and dive sites. As the gateway to the Whitsundays, Airlie Beach keeps the mainland buzzing with a vibrant mix of bars, restaurants, backpackers, yachties, beaches and carefree holiday vibes.
Visitors to Airlie Beach will find plenty to do both on the mainland and out at sea. Airlie Beach lagoon provides a safe yet scenic spot for kids and adults alike to splash around or take to the Esplanade for an afternoon stroll, cup of coffee and bout of people-watching. Yet another sandy experience can be found with a trip to Whitehaven Beach, well worth a visit for picturesque vistas alone not to mention swimming and general chilling out.
When it comes to the Great Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Islands, there are so many ways to experience these natural wonders including an eco-cruise, diving tour or luxury charter. For the romantics at heart, a plane ride over the world-renowned Heart Reef is not only a great outing with a loved one but also makes for a unique photo opportunity, while a day trip to Hamilton Island provides even more nature escapes that can't be found anywhere else in the world. Back on terra firma, travellers head to the cascades at Cedar Creek Falls or take a hike on the Whitsunday Great Walk.
