Things To Do in Airlie Beach
Beyond the music festival, there are many other things to enjoy in Airlie Beach. After all, it wouldn’t be called a premier tourist destination for nothing. For example, if you’ve already seen the Great Barrier Reef underwater, why not see it from above? Take an Air Whitsunday tour and see one of the world’s greatest and most fascinating natural wonders aboard a helicopter or a seaplane.
Alternatively, if you would rather just sit back and take things slow, you can drop a line a line along the bay, in the marina, or at one of the many beaches along the coast. Fishing is a favourite pastime in Airlie Beach, and you can sign up for a half or whole day fishing charter if you prefer to drop a line in the open water.
Of course one of the most memorable Airlie Beach experiences you can have is on board one of our yachts. Contact our team to find out more about chartering a yacht in Airlie Beach.
