Hi there!...This is where we will be heading for the '2009 VT Meet' ...it's a fantastic place and I am lucky to live right next door! Ann aka 'aussierose' and I are busy swapping ideas to make this a VT Meet to remember. So put September 10th in your diary for next year and hopefully we will see you there...come on down!
Popular Airlie Beach lies 1,100 kilometre north of Brisbane and 620 kilometre south of Cairns. It is also very handy for myself as it is only a bit over an hours drive from my hometown of Mackay. Airlie is a thriving and bustling tourist town located in the Whitsundays.
Its mild tropical climate has an average annual temperature of 27C maximum and a minimum of 21C. This place also averages 8.25 hours of magnificent sunshine every day!!
On any day of the week this place is buzzing! It is the jumping off point for tourists heading to the 74 islands of the Whitsundays and the town is full of shops, night clubs, pubs and cafes and restaurants.
You really can't get away from the tourist element here...they are everywhere but it is still an exciting and interesting place to visit with loads of accomodation and fascilities.
The town itself consists of one long main street...beach on one side and a hillside covered in condos and holiday units on the other.
There are oodles of shops, cafes, pubs, night clubs and restaurants to choose from.
Always something to see and do and a real fun and happening place for everyone...young and old.
If you have had enough of shopping, alfresco dining and people watching
you can grab a towel and hit the beach to soak up some of that sun.
Or take a walk along the esplanade. Lots of palm trees, walkways, grassy areas and the views over the turquoise waters of the bay are just lovely.
- Pros:Very tropical, lots of fun and plenty of shopping.
- Cons:A bit touristy and comes with a higher price tag.
- In a nutshell:If its fun, sun and scenery you are after this is a must see.
A day out sailing the Whitsundays on board the catamaran Camira is an experience not to be missed. Especially when you... more travel advice
