Airlie Beach  Queensland

Nature was at peace with the world when it brushed its hand over the land first seen by Captain James Cook as he sailed through a passage of glittering sea on Whit Sunday in June 1770.

Cook’s name of Whitsunday Passage, which has since been extended to cover the off-shore islands and coast, was apt because there is something distinctly divine about the panorama of lush green hills sweeping down to an azure sea.

That is the setting for the resort town of Airlie Beach, which, along with Whitsunday, Shute Haven and Cannonvale, is a major departure point for resort islands such as Hamilton, Hayman, South Molle, Hook, Daydream and, of course, Whitsunday. This Eden lies just a few kilometres off the Bruce Highway. Airlie Beach and The Whitsunday waters present a sailing paradise for old salts, novices and all levels of seamen in between.

This holiday town offers a beach, marina and major accommodation resorts with great facilities, loads of restaurants, cafes and shops for holiday makers.

Festivals - Triathlon (August) Whitsunday Fun Race (September)
