The Whitsundays | Places to Visit

Not just the gateway to the 74 Islands of the Whitsundays, Airlie Beach is where you can begin to unwind and soak up the vibrant and social atmosphere.

  • The main street is where all the action happens with alfresco dining, bars, boutique stores, flat seaside pathways for cycling or running and a sparkling lagoon.
  • Take a short break away from the crowds and leave your footprints on one of the lesser-known beaches in the Whitsundays like Dingo Beach near Hydeaway Bay or the gorgeous Horseshoe Bay in Bowen with a Mango in hand of course. 
  • If a trip down memory lane is what you’re after, Proserpine’s main street is lined with art deco shop fronts and old school pubs. Get outdoors & spend the day hiking the luscious rainforest of Cedar Creek Falls, or go croc spotting on the Proserpine River!
  • Then we have the 74 Whitsunday Islands with the award winning, whitest of white beaches – Whitehaven Beach glistening beyond the shore. Immerse yourself in island paradise at one of five island resorts that offer range of accommodation options and activities.
