Airlie Beach Swimming Lagoon

The addition of Airlie Beach's man-made Lagoon swimming pool, on the 8th January 2001, makes year-round swimming possible. The Airlie Beach Lagoon is a beautiful addition to the Whitsunday region and is exceptionally popular with locals and visitors alike. Set in landscaped parkland overlooking the bay, the fully patrolled Airlie Beach Lagoon provides a stinger free swimming environment for everyone to enjoy.

Landscaped with grassy areas, a sandy beach and wonderful tropical gardens, the large Airlie Beach swimming lagoon can be mistaken for paradise in itself. The lagoon provides a saltwater environment that is completely safe from stingers, (jellyfish), all year round. The Airlie Beach lagoon area is surrounded by sheltered tables and chairs, shady trees, multiple gas barbecues, and extensive pathways, all the makings for a great day out. The complex also includes buildings housing showers and toilets, as well as a first aid room and security desk.
