Whitsunday Foreshore Markets

The Lions Airlie Beach Community Markets are a great place to stop by if you are looking for local produce, art, craft or locally made Whitsunday souvenirs. You can find anything from handmade jewelry to Hawaiian shirts and tie dyed clothes. They sell hand painted signs, home grown fruit and veges, potted herbs, handcrafted toys, local artwork of the Whitsundays, homemade spices, unique candy, delicious food and drink and so much more!

The Airlie Beach markets are held on the foreshore between the Airlie Beach Hotel and the Whitsunday Sailing Club every Saturday morning. They start early in the morning at 7.00am and they usually finish just after lunch at 1.00pm. They also open for the Cruise Ships on the days that they are visiting town.

The stalls are set up in the sand along the beach, under the coconut trees and beside the water. It is such a beautiful location to wonder around with the sand between your toes, while you browse through all the local products.

Be sure to check out Patrick and Sylvie’s Bowen Mango sorbet stall, where the locals have been going for years. Their mango sorbet is the best in town and they have been selling this delicious sorbet at the Whitsunday markets for over 20 years!

If you are lucky, Whitsunday Sand Art will put on a display for you to enjoy while passing through the market stalls. Adrian Connor’s famous dragon is displayed below.

When the Whitsunday Camels are in town, they also make an appearance at the Airlie Beach markets. They take the kids for a ride along the beach in front of the market stalls, with the beautiful ocean backdrop behind them.

While you are sitting down and enjoying a delicious coffee on the beach front, why not let the kids play in the massive new playground! This fully fenced playground is every child’s dream, with high sweeping slides and spiderweb ropes to navigate through. They will be entertained for hours in this playground, they may never want to leave!

Finally, what makes the Airlie Beach foreshore markets so special, is its live music. A lot of local bands get the chance to play here, to warm up and entertain the crowd while they walk around the stalls.

So if you are looking for something to do on your Saturday morning, the Airlie Beach Foreshore markets are a must. Help support the locals and go and check out what they have got to offer. See you there!

Shutehaven Beach House
Lovely house and very homely and comfortable for a family to stay in. My only annoyance was having to chase up the host for check in instructions right up until a couple hours before check in which becomes a bit concerning when in transit.

15 Kara - Luxurious Home With Million Dollar Views
Great house. Stiff walk up the hill but a nice view. Fantastic having 4 showers, rules are fairly strict around noise but that was fine - the comms with the host was really seamless and positive.

Relax & Daydream @ 2 Elementa
What a wonderful holiday! having seen the photos of Elementa 2 we certainly were not disappointed upon arrival. The views from the property were spectacular and the residence itself is beautiful, tastefully decorated, spacious, with very comfortable bedding and very clean throughout. While Elementa is located on the hill the walk into town is easy and we had no problem catching cabs when returning home and the fares were not expensive. The staff at Whitsunday Vacations were a pleasure to liaise with and I would definitely recommend Elementa 2 to anyone wanting to stay in Airlie Beach.

Marina living with Whitsundays lifestyle @ the Boathouse
We were really happy with our stay at the Boathouse Apartments. The location was perfect - literally 150m from the Hamilton Island ferry drop off point. There are great cafes and restaurants on the ground level of the building, and it's less than a 5 minute walk into the heart of Airlie Beach town. The communication from the hosts was excellent throughout the entire stay, as well as before checking in and after checking out. Two small things worth flagging (which are no fault of the hosts/rental company): 1.) One of the bedrooms is on the back/street side of the apartment and it gets very loud from an early hour due to the traffic on the main road. Would suggest bringing some ear plugs. 2.) There are essentially three doors to get into the unit. The door downstairs that everyone in the building shares wasn't locking for the first 3 out of the 4 days we were there. The second door doesn't lock at all, which means people could get directly to the unit's front door if they wanted. Normally this wouldn't bother us as we locked the door each time we left the unit, but there are typical Queensland style windows next to the door which don't lock and can be opened from the outside. If someone wanted to they could flip the windows up, stick their hand inside and open the door from the inside. We didn't witness any suspicious activity whatsoever the entire time we were there, but we were a bit nervous about leaving for the entire day knowing it would be relatively easy to break in. With that said, there are safes for small valuables inside the apartment. Overall it was a really enjoyable stay and would definitely recommend.

my husband and I had the most wonderful week in Boathouse 103 Port Airlie. The view from our balcony was a treat to wake up to every morning and so peacefully quiet. we found the location was so convenient and was walking distance to everything we needed. Absolutely love Airlie Beach and can't wait to return.

Stunning house in a great location. The walk to Airlie Beach Main Street is flat, however, there is a lovely cafe and restaurants also close by. The outdoor area is fantastic and the house features high quality appliances and furnishings. Amazing place to stay, would definitely recommend
