Some people embrace the cold weather and chase the snow during winter while others seek comfort in the hidden gems that still produce sunshine, warmth and an endless summer vibe. The Whitsundays is that place for many visitors and locals alike as they relish the mild warm days, clear skies and green tropical waters. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing escape or the adventure of a lifetime, Airlie Beach and the Whitsundays accommodates for both.
If relaxing is your desire you may want to sit by the pool and drink cocktails at Hamilton Island or sail around the 74 islands on a chartered yacht watching the Whales migrate with their calves. Maybe you’re more upbeat and want to dive the Great Barrier Reef, go sports fishing or hiking around the islands and exploring the pure silica sands of Whitehaven Beach. Whatever your adventurous spirit seeks, the Whitsundays has you covered. With average winter temperatures of 24° max, 18° minimum and an average water temperature of around 23° you’ll be questioning everything you know about winter.
With so many fun and picturesque activities available in the Whitsundays, you can be spoilt for choice but one annual event that should be experienced at least once in your lifetime is the Airlie Beach Race Week. Running from the 8th-15th of August the Airlie Beach Race Week or ABRW brings the small coastal town of Airlie Beach to life with 6 days and 7 nights of yacht racing and live entertainment. Thousands of visitors come every year to compete or just to enjoy the festival atmosphere and free entertainment.
An influx of visitors to Airlie Beach adds to the atmosphere but quality Airlie Beach Accommodation can be hard to come by if you don’t plan early.
