Airlie Beach is a town in the Whitsunday Region of Queensland, Australia. This small town is one of many departure points for the Great Barrier Reef. Airlie Beach, Proserpine, and the nearby Whitsunday Islands enjoy a tropical climate and lifestyle.The Whitsunday Islands, named by James Cook in 1770 are a sailors' paradise. Cook named the islands as he believed he passed through the area on the Christian festival day of Whit Sunday. It is now widely accepted that he didn't actually pass through on this date, as he had failed to take into account the yet to be brought into existence International Date Line. Each year the residents of Airlie Beach celebrate The Blessing of the Fleet on Whit Sunday or Pentecost Sunday.
Airlie Beach is a tourist destination, extremely popular with backpackers. Its beach is small and the sea is inhabited by marine stingers, the box jellyfish from November to May. In order to provide somewhere for the visiting tourists to swim, the local council has built a medium sized swimming lagoon on the foreshore, similar to the lagoon found in Cairns. The Airlie Beach Lagoon is 4,300 m2 and 4.5 million litres of fresh, self-chlorinated water. The Great Barrier Reef is easily accessible from Airlie Beach, with an array of different types of tours available.
If location, tranquillity, and comfort are what you are looking for in holiday accommodation, this huge, Bella Vista Holiday House in Airlie's premier residential precinct, is the place to be. It is located only minutes walk to the new Port of Airlie, the Lagoon, and Airlie village.
Holidaying at the beautiful Bella Vista allows you the best of both worlds. You can sit back and relax on the beautifully appointed outdoor furniture and watch hundreds of vessels come and go from the Port of Airlie Marina, take a short walk to the lagoon, or to the many restaurants, and enjoy the cosmopolitan lifestyle shopping in Airlie Beach Central.
At Bella Vista enjoy the chance to explore the spectacular surrounding areas of the Whitsundays, from swimming, snorkeling, diving, sailing, flying over, or visiting the resort Islands of Daydream, Hamilton, Long, and Hook.
Quietly nestled in the hillside amongst lush tropical gardens, Bella Vista is quite simply one of the best Whitsunday's holiday homes.
