Breathtaking views and a nice chance for a walk. You can take a drive or a bus if your mobility isn't fabulous and this is well worth it if you are spending a few days at Airlie, just to round your trip out and experience the far side of town. If you only have limited time give it a miss... More

Thas was once a busy harbour for all boats to the reef and Islands. It has now not used as all boats and reef cruises have moved to Able Point or Cover Marina. Not worth the visit except for fishing

It is paradise found. So tranquil, quiet. Coral point Lodge is so peaceful and the owner, Brian is so hospitable and makes you feel very welcome. Short drive into busy Airlie. You can catch a ferryclose by to Hamilton. We will be back to stay here again.

Great view towards the islands. Even if you do not want to enter a boat. The scenic view is just fantastic.

I read in the Whitsunday Times that the owner was closing the premises about 3 weeks ago. When all the island ferries moved from Shute Harbour and Abel Point Marina to Port of Airlie the Shute Harbour wharfs had very little use. Back issues of the Times would confirm this.

Beautiful place, great view on islands, fresh air. You can go for some great walk around this point. We enjoyed the mount rooper walk, and the coral beach walk

Very nice spot, make sure you bring your camera! Nice view, only downside is you have to pay for parking.

Nothing to see here unless you want to launch a boat/get on a boat and go fishing. No shops. Seemed dead. Airlie beach has taken over with its marinas. Not worth a visit.

If you have a car its worthwhile checking out shute harbour for the views of the harbour and some islands, there isnt really anything else to do in the area unless you have a tour mind you.
