Airlie Beach – Heart of the Reef
A slice of paradise called Airlie Beach exists on Australia's East Coast, midway between Rockhampton and Cairns. Recognised as the gateway to The Great Barrier Reef and the Whitsunday Islands, Airlie Beach has a lot on offer and is one of the country's most beautiful coastal towns.
The warm sea breezes, picturesque beaches stretching along the coastline, lush rainforests, sunny days and balmy nights offer a relaxed lifestyle with abundant wildlife. Whether you're taking a break with the kids, partner or friends, Airlie Beach has something for everyone.
We look at some of the top things to do in Airlie Beach.
