Airlie Beach is a small but popular resort town lying on the shores of a palm fringed beach and overlooking the calm waters of Pioneer Bay on the Queensland coast. Boat access is via Shute Harbour, 8km east and the Abel Point Marina. Airlie is part of a picturesque peninsula that reaches out to the Whitsunday Passage and is gateway to the 70-odd islands of the Whitsunday group, probably the best known and most developed of the Barrier Reef islands. Beaches around here are not great but sights in the town include The Wildlife Park and Vic Hslop Great White Shark and Whale Expo. Nearby is the Conway National Park with its rugged ranges and valleys covered in dense rainforest.
