Airlie Beach is the mainland base for exploring the Whitsunday Islands. Accommodation ranges from backpacker to five star and all in between. Getting here is easy. You can come by road, coach, rail or by air.
The options are limitless here … you can enjoy the mainland, charter your own yacht, cruise the beautiful Whitsunday islands, dive and snorkel the surrounding reef, fish, or just sit back and relax on the beautiful island resorts.
From April to October, daytime temperatures are 20 to 24 degrees C and vary at night from 14 to 18 degrees. During the “green season” from November to March, the daytime range is 24 to 30 degrees with nights from 18 to 26. The waters in this tropical paradise remain at a constant 20 to 22 degrees throughout the year.
Pack light natural fibre clothing for your casual tropical holiday. Bring your swimmers and a towel, a wrap for an island or beach visit and a windcheater for sailing or the slightly cooler nights of our tropical winter. Something a little more “dressy” will be useful for the evenings, but the mood is still casual. Your “must bring” kit should include sunscreen, a wide brimmed hat and sand shoes or sneakers for walking on coral beaches.
