we took a drive and enjoyed the view

We had a quick look at the Harbour and enjoyed the view over the water. It wasnt as busy as it used to be.

Had a drive from Airlie to Shute Harbour, Beautiful, peaceful scenery on a hot, sunny day with a cloudless sky-couldn't wish for anything more pleasant and relaxing.

I'd seen a couple of reviews saying what a waste of time it is to visit, however if you love a good view, you can't miss this place. You have to appreciate this place for what it is, a working harbor that happens to have incredible scenery. It doesn't have the shops and restaurants, but that's only a few minutes... More

Shute Harbour is a lovely little place but there is nothing here. There are no food places, it's just one of the ferry launch areas. We basically drove in and drove out again, but it is a lovely little drive between Airlie Beach and the harbour. The ocean was a beautiful green/blue colour. If you had a picnic it would... More

Wow I read some mixed reviews and thought I will check it out for myself, should have listened to the reviews that said it is just a turn at the end of the road. Ok there are some working boats etc but there is no appeal in this area. There was a drunken derelict who had soiled his pants at... More

Went for a drive to Shute Harbour and found there are lots of panoramic views from the streets, overlooking the harbour and marina. A working harbour which is quite active. Well worth a look.

Nice walk up the Mountain from Shute harbour with a really Nice view. From the top there is a track back down again to the other side. This walk takes approximatively 2 hours
