Welcome to Airlie Beach

Airlie Beach

The gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Islands, Airlie Beach is a small town in the Whitsunday region and is a fabulous place to enjoy the day and soak up all there is in this idyllic setting. With a great variety of activities to enjoy such as snorkelling, fishing, crocodile safaris and scenic flights of Whitehaven Beach, there's plenty to see and do in this laid-back and picturesque town. The vibe is simply electric with holidaymakers lining the streets, beer gardens overflowing and bars and clubs pumping until the wee hours. Travellers should be aware that the Irukandji jellyfish, which pack a powerful sting, pose a major threat to swimmers during the months of November to May when they abound in the water, but a medium sized swimming lagoon on the foreshore is the perfect place to cool off on a hot summer's day.

Information & Facts

English is the official language of Australia.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) is divided into 100 cents. Banks and bureaux de change exchange most foreign currencies. Travellers cheques are also welcome everywhere, but banks take a small commission and it is better to take cheques in major currencies (e.g. US dollars or Euros) to avoid additional charges. Credit cards are widely accepted and ATMs are freely available throughout the country. Banking hours are generally 9.30am to 4pm Monday to Thursday, and 9.30am to 5pm on Friday, but some banks offer extended hours and some are open on Saturday mornings.
