Get amongst the action on Shute Harbour Road

Airlie Beach is known almost as well for its wild nightlife and bar scenes than it is for its sparkling waters. The main street of Airlie, a small part of Shute Harbour Road, is the place to be for souvenir shopping, clothing stores, pubs, dance clubs, restaurants and art galleries.

Find that classic Australian beach holiday vibe at hotels and resorts located near Shute Harbour Road. The Airlie Court Holiday Units, Airlie Beach Hotel and the Whitsunday on the Beach all put you close to the main town and beach, and include convenient facilities, comfortable rooms and friendly service.

Lose yourself away from it all

If you choose to stay a little further out of Airlie’s main street, you’ll notice a significant drop off in noise and crowds. The hotels outside of the main drag are just as luxurious, if not more so, and you still have access to the beaches, surrounding Whitsunday Islands and the lush landscape of Conway National Park.

Find utter serenity in accommodation that exceeds four-star quality such as the Airlie Summit Apartments and Peppers Airlie Beach, which both possess incredible sea views and the right facilities to keep you pampered. The Club Croc Hotel and Mango House Resort also provide good-value accommodation away from the crowds. 

Metres from the beach

A beach getaway should be spent enjoying the beach and what better way to do so than staying only steps away from the ocean. Airlie boasts four beaches as well as the Airlie Beach Lagoon, which also has playgrounds, barbeques and table tennis facilities. You can take a kayak out onto the water or simply stretch out on the warm sand and soak up some sun.

The five-star Peninsula Airlie Beach is one of the most sumptuous forms of accommodation in the area, featuring its own marina and self-contained apartments and penthouses. The Coral Sea Resort boasts on-site water sports and plenty of places to have a drink while the sun goes down.
