Airlie Beach Lagoon

The Airlie Beach lagoon is perfect for spending a day relaxing by the huge landscaped pool, gardens, BBQ’s, kids playgrounds and man-made beach.

The Airlie Beach Lagoon is FREE and open to everyone. The lagoon is 4,300sqm and 4.5 million litres of fresh, self-chlorinated water, located parallel to the Main Street, on the foreshore of Airlie Beach.  It provides an environment that is completely safe from stingers, all year round.

It is built on a raised breakwater, giving an excellent view out to the Coral Sea and Whitsunday Islands.

Lifeguards patrol the lagoon from 9am – 7pm during winter and 8am – 9pm during summer.  The lagoon area is currently not pet-friendly.
