Very much a town with an emphasis on the tropical lifestyle, Airlie Beach offers exotic surroundings with palm trees and charming, sandy beaches.
On the 29th (Sat), kick back and relax at Airlie Beach Lagoon, look for gifts at Beach Book Boutique, then get some thrills out on the water with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure, and finally relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas. Keep things going the next day: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Airlie Beach trip simple and quick.
