We spent a few days in and around Airlie, discovering it was peak season for charter boats with most popular anchorages proving over popular!
It was great to see the Airlie region kicking some tourism goals again. Lots of people on the streets and not so many shop vacancies - assisted no doubt by the completion of the streetscape project which must have been the bane of business owners last year.
While the main Whitsunday Islands are indeed beautiful, our favourite places are proving to be to the north between Airlie and Gloucester Island. There's many beaut islands, bays and beaches to explore along here - so that's where we're hanging out.
