Very much a town with an emphasis on the tropical lifestyle, Airlie Beach offers exotic surroundings with palm trees and charming, sandy beaches.
We've included these beaches for you: Whitehaven Beach and Airlie Beach Lagoon. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Proserpine Museum and Art Whitsunday Gallery & Shop. Spend the 16th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. On the 17th (Wed), spend a thrilling day on the water with a speed boat tour. The adventure continues: zoom along the surf with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure, add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, and get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

To find traveler tips, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Airlie Beach tour itinerary planner .

Sydney to Airlie Beach is an approximately 6-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also do a combination of flight and ferry; or drive. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Sydney in July since evenings lows in Airlie Beach dip to 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sun) so you can travel to Bowen.

Bowen is a coastal town and locality in the Whitsunday Region on the eastern coast of Queensland, Australia. On the 22nd (Mon), appreciate the history behind The Big Mango, then take an in-depth tour of Bowen Historical Society and Museum, and then look for all kinds of wild species at Horseshoe Bay. On the next day, make a trip to Mother Beddock Rock, then don't miss a visit to Horseshoe Bay Rotary Lookout, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Grays Bay.

Plan my trip to Bowen with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Drive from Airlie Beach to Bowen in an hour. Traveling from Airlie Beach in July, you can expect nighttime temperatures to be slightly colder in Bowen, with lows of 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Tue) so you can travel back home.
