Where to stay in Airlie Beach and on the Whitsunday Coast

  • Airlie Beach town: For stays closest to the marina where most Whitsundays day trips depart from and hostel accommodation. Town is also ideal for close access to the public lagoon.
  • Whitsunday Coast/Proserpine airport: For easy access to flights and hire cars
  • Cannonvale: For affordable private accommodation options, plus access to more amenities and larger shops and supermarkets.
  • Jubilee Pocket: For holiday park and caravan accommodation.
  • Shute Harbour: For access to Coral Beach walking track and ferries to Hamilton Island. Ferries also depart from the marina in Airlie Beach.

Whether you need to cancel because of unforeseen events, or they’re calling for a stormy week on the coast, you can book refundable accommodation for a less-risky stay. Some sites only offer free cancellation on select hotels or at a slightly higher rate, so it’s best to check the terms on your booking before confirming your stay. Most sites, like Wotif or Expedia, will clearly state whether a stay is non-refundable.

Each site also has different policies, so it’s best to check at the time of booking how far in advance you have to cancel your stay.
