What to see in Airlie Beach

Airlie Beach, with its serene waters, lush landscapes and access to some of Australia’s most prized natural wonders, is more than just a picturesque stop. It’s a destination that invites exploration and promises unforgettable experiences.

Your Airlie Beach cruise wouldn’t be complete without venturing into the heart of the Whitsunday Islands - and there’s no better way to explore this archipelago of 74 tropical islands than by setting sail on the turquoise waters. Each island presents its unique charm, with opportunities to anchor and explore. Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island is a must-visit, renowned for its 7 kilometres of the purest white silica sand and swirling, multi-hued waters - a spectacle best viewed from the lookout at Hill Inlet. The islands also offer a myriad of snorkelling opportunities; the fringing reefs are teeming with vibrant coral gardens and diverse marine life, presenting an underwater wonderland that rivals even the Great Barrier Reef.

Airlie Beach serves as an ideal starting point for the unforgettable experience of diving or snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest and most diverse coral reef system. As you plunge into the underwater realm, you’ll find yourself surrounded by a kaleidoscope of colours and shapes - corals of every imaginable hue, giant clams opening and closing to the rhythm of the sea and schools of fish darting around like vibrant confetti. Turtles glide by gracefully, reef sharks patrol the perimeters and playful clownfish hide among the anemones.

For a change of scenery, head inland to Conway National Park, a coastal park featuring lowland tropical rainforest, mangroves and picturesque hiking trails. Just a short drive from Airlie Beach, this park is a haven for nature lovers and adventurers alike. One of the most popular treks is the Conway Circuit, previously known as the Whitsunday Great Walk. This 27-kilometre trail, often traversed over three days, winds through a lush landscape of strangler figs, vibrant orchids and tall brush box trees. Birdwatchers will revel in the opportunity to spot an array of native bird species, while the more fortunate might catch a glimpse of the elusive Proserpine rock wallaby.
