Whitsundays Parking near Shute Harbour Marina. Safe, secure, and very well run. Staff are friendly and the place is cheaper than council car parks for long term parking. Sadly Cruise Whitsundays no longer operate much from here (there office there is closing in October, and only a few cruises will depart from there). That said the Soren Lass is down... More

We had travelled from Melbourne for over 6 hours with young family and had 2 hrs until the ferry came, it was hot and the bar/restaurant had been closed, which was ridiculous as so many people were waiting.

There really is nothing here. The building are ugly and there really isn't anything to see- don't waste you time.

Now that the new port of Airlie has open up there is nothing up there. I think the only cruise that leaves from there is the one that goes to Long Island. All the shops are closed even the toilets. You have to cross the road and use the public one now.

I have enjoyed a beautiful sunrise for all the three days that I have stayed in Airlie Beach. It is also close to the cruise from here so can have a morning coffee and get on the cruise.

Pretty place and worth a visit. A car is needed if you want to have a good look around the harbour. Shute Harbour itself does not have much but the wharf but still worth a visit. More stuff to see in Airlie.

Short drive out of Airlie beach. Access point to the surrounding islands but also worth a visit. Very scenic.

I love to drive up to Shute Harbour for the drive itself and the magnificent views over the water when you get there. This is where you catch some ferries to the islands and also the port for the workers ferries. But if you like boats you will see all sorts here.
