Attractions near the Colonial Palms Motor Inn
Make a splash at Cedar Creek Falls
This natural haven, a delight for all ages, is just a 30-minute drive from your hotel in Airlie Beach through sugarcane fields and rolling green hills. Lush tropical rainforest surrounds a crystal-clear freshwater swimming hole and waterfall set in a natural rock amphitheatre. This gorgeous setting invites visitors to luxuriate in the clean, refreshing water amid unspoiled natural surroundings.
There are numerous bushwalks around these picturesque falls, with strangler figs, red and white cedars and wild orchids providing a lush and beautiful environment to wander through. While Cedar Creek Falls are lovely all year-round, the ‘wet season’ from December to April is the ideal time to visit.
Soak up the sun at Airlie Beach Lagoon
This popular man-made swimming area by the ocean is spacious enough to never feel crowded, and is a safe haven from stingers (jellyfish) particularly from October to May in the high-risk season. Combining tropical landscaping, a sandy beach area and a large, free-form swimming pool, Airlie Beach Lagoon will keep kids and adults alike content all day long.
Whether splashing about in the shallows, swimming laps or relaxing under the shade of a poolside palm tree, this is a delightful destination children will beg to return to day after day. With plenty of barbecue facilities and picnic areas onsite, you can easily whip up a fresh seafood feast to enjoy alongside the gorgeous ocean views.
