Great dip

Great place to swim when you cant swim in the ocean because of the stingers. It over looks the ocean has beautiful scenery

Loved the lagoon, lots of space to swim and put a blanket down even when it's busy. Water temp was cooler than the sea when we visited but overall a great hangout spot. Our daughter loved the little kids playground too.

Our boys just love visiting the Lagoon for a swim. Great for mum and dad to sit back and relax or take a dip too. Close to shops, very well set up and lifeguards on duty during the day.

The lagoon is on the waterfront and just a few metres from the main street of Airlie Beach. It is quite a large size and is in fact divided into three separate sections. It has its own artificial beach. The lagoon is patrolled by lifesavers. Amenities are located adjacent to the lagoon.

Beautiful lagoon, I spent an entire day sun bathing and swimming. You are close to the shops, very clean toilets are available. It's a perfect place if you just want to relax

We really enjoyed our visits to the lagoon with our 1 & 3 year old. The kids pool is great and next to a small park which was good.

Good spot to swim or chill. Also got a good park for kids and not far from the many options to eat. Whether you are young or old this is the spot to be in Airlie.

The lagoon is a great place to take your kids - it has a shallow area and is patrolled by lifeguards. Plenty of room to relax and soak up the sun and there are also free BBQ facilities.

Great place for a swim. Big enough that you are not having to get out of others way. Great kids pool area. Lifeguards on duty all day. Could not fault it.
