Airlie Beach, Queensland.

Airlie Beach is the Heart of the Reef and it's in the Tropics of Australia. Population is just over 1,200 people and it swells in the tourist season.
The beach area is popular with tourist many young ones for it's climate and the beach which is rather nice.
Last year when there I took lovely photos of the beach but can't find them - seems I've deleted them accidentally!  Oh well, never mind.
The main shopping area of Airlie Beach is at Cannonvale a few klm before you get to Airlie Beach.





A few accommodation places, there are many more.




The main beach which is very nice with palm trees, places to sit and have a barbecue and so on..
Below is another little beach just around the corner from the first beach.

  4. I suspect I would prefer it in the 'off' season, but it does look inviting.

    1. Not busy the days we were there which is rather odd. You could even get parked in the street but it was late afternoon.

    1. We usually head towards the sea when we are up higher as in Northern of Australia.

  7. It is a millionaires 'play ground'.
    The yachts tell that story and an apartment on those mind blowing
    hills overlooking the "passage" costs $$$$$$$$$$$ !!!
    It truly is idyllic.

    Oh those pool parties at South Molle VERY late were "sans attire" - both genders!
    Unfortunately they came to an abrupt end when one bloke darn near killed himself on the slippery dip and that resulted in an emergency air ambulance trip to
    I think Rockhampton Hospital. You don't run down slippery dips when you are 3/4 smashed.
    Ah Margaret see what youthful fun you missed out on - ha ha!!!

      Expensive place to buy a house or an apartment.

    1. Leave the van where you stay away from Airlie Beach then go for day trips, that's what we did and went several times.

  9. Another one of my previous stomping grounds.

    A friend was Front Office Manager at the Coral Sea Resort...and her fellow was the Commodore at the Whitsunday Sailing Club, at Airlie Beach. They lived in a unit in the main street.

    1. Not a bad place to live then, probably a bit noisy being in the main street.

      Delete
    2. No...it wasn't noisy. The unit was at the rear of the building. This was back in the late 80s and early 90s. It probably is a lot different these days.

      Magnums Bar...at the lower end of the Main Street made the best Margaritas!! :)

    3. Ok. Many clubs down the main strip now...ah! so you enjoyed your Margaritas :) good one you.
