Airlie Beach Accommodation & Holidays

Here are the findings for our research on the best Airlie Beach accommodation options on different budgets.  Airlie Beach is the perfect size to retain it's district North Queensland charm and is more than a jumping off point to the Whitsundays.

Because it does have a problem with stingers we advise visitors to use the massive man made pool downtown or the pool in your resort. 

Best Airlie Beach Resorts and Accommodation

We went to Airlie beach recently on vacation and found it a great place for a holiday. Although it is a bit of a backpacker town, it makes for a wonderful holiday destination. You don't even need to stay on the nearby Whitsunday island to have a good time, but I would advise that you at least visit them on a day trip or two.

Daydream Island Resort off Airlie Beach

Daydream Island ResortDaydream Island Resort

Daydream is either experienced as a day trip from Airlie Beach, part of a bigger cruise to Whitehaven Beach or as a destination island where you can enjoy 4.5 star luxury and some pretty good amenities. The mini golf is one of the best I have seen in Australia.

Another attraction is the artificial reefs created from real coral in acres of aquariums pools around. Have your lunch gazing down at sharks and rays, the the marine show or have your kid do an internship with the reef program.
