Where To Stay
There are so many great experiences to have at Airlie Beach that you will need to spend a week or more just to fit it all in. Don’t worry about finding somewhere to stay, there are plenty of options for you to choose from.
- Caravan Parks – Some of the best holiday memories you can have are from caravan parks. The whole family bundled into cabins or caravans, making new friends, and enjoying the clear night sky. Revisit those memories at one of the caravan parks at Airlie Beach.
- Hotels and Motels – One of the benefits of being on the road is sitting back and relaxing while someone else does all the cooking and cleaning. By staying in one of the prestige hotels or motels on offer, you get more time to do what you want to do.
- Camping Grounds – Pitching a tent and staring up at the stars will be enough to recharge your inner batteries and prepare you for all you have planned. Go rustic or join the new wave of ‘glamping’.
For ease of travel, you can leave the car at home, or park the caravan in one of the serviced parks and take public transport. Trains, small aircraft, and buses can take you almost anywhere you want to go.
Events/Things to Do
There is so much to do at Airlie Beach, you’ll be struggling to fit it all in. Markets selling arts and crafts, fresh produce, and many other items are held weekly.
