When to visit the Whitsunday Coast

From yacht races to music festivals, Airlie Beach plays host to some of the biggest events on the Whitsunday Coast. Here's a few key dates to help you lock in your travel dates:

Airlie Beach Race Week – Taking over the Whitsunday Coast every August, the Airlie Beach Race Week is one of the largest yacht racing regattas in the country. And, with live entertainment and market stalls on the sand, there's plenty to do between races.

Airlie Beach Triathlon – Going strong for over 15 years, the Airlie Beach Triathlon is a favourite with athletes of all skill levels. Taking place in September, this springtime race day has evolved into a full weekend of outdoor events that the whole family will love.

Airlie Beach Festival of Music – Attracting some of the biggest acts from around the world, the Airlie Beach Music Festival is a three-day concert that brings the beach to life every November. And if you like the look of the line-up, you can pre-book your tickets today.

Getting around the Whitsunday Coast

If you've got your sights set on the coastline, Whitsunday Transit provide a daily bus service connecting the airport with Cannonvale, Airlie Beach and Shute Harbour. Just remember to arrive at your stop with a few minutes to spare as departures are less frequent than a standard city service.

The new Whitsunday Coast airport

Off the back of a recent renovation, the Whitsunday Coast Airport is now widely considered to be one of Australia's premier regional airports. On top of spacious terminals and state-of-the-art facilities, passengers can also look forward to seeing the new Heart Reef Aquarium – an underwater wonder that brings the baggage claim area to life.
