Hi all,

Airlie Beach (pronounced Early Beach) is the departure point for the Whitsundays Cruise - the must do for any Backpacker. The day before we departed for our 2 day, 2 night boat cruise, it was Australia Day. Our day was spent laying around the pool before gingerly going to the very very busy Magnums pub/club to watch the Australia vs. England cricket match. As England won the game is wasn't the best place to be for us English, with many drunk Australians being very rowdy and just generally doing a lot of shouting and swearing. We got bored of this pretty quickly so headed back early to get some rest and be ready for the next 2 days sailing.

Airlie Beach itself is a small town with only one street. It has a gorgeous harbour and a lovely lagoon with a man-made beach and a childrens playground (much like a Victorian swimming parade). Airlie Beach is very much an up-and-coming resort destination with a new multi-million dollar marine being built, along with holiday resorts and ever increasing house property. A definite place to invest for the future!
See you on the boat

Love Thomas and Hollie xxx
