“Love the Lagoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

The lagoon is huge, it's clean, has lots of shaded areas to rest/sunbath, lifeguards, smack bang in the middle of Airlie Beach. Better than any resort pool!

IT is a very nice place to come and relax, we were even lucky enough to see dolphins come to the shore which was awesome!

“A very hot pool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Temperature-wise this is a very hot pool that gives you the illusion of swimming in thee ocean right nearby, but you don't need a stinger suit. You can flow around and see all the back backers (Airlie is a BIG back packer town) recovering from their respective hangovers. It's very nicely landscaped and there are a lot of places to sit with shade. Similar to the South Bank "beach" in Brisbane. I would advise booking a hotel outside of Airlie because it gets loud and there's a lot of party mischief (i.e. vomiting on the sidewalk at 3 a.m.) Also don't buy at the Airlie Supermarket; if you have a car, drive to the IGA further down Shute Harbor Rd in Jubilee Pocket. The prices are significantly cheaper than at the Airrlie supermarket with a much bigger selection.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Great place to go to cool down. Plenty of BBQ areas and places to have a picnic. Quite full during the day and the sun can be quite hot. Great if you into that..we tried to avoid the sun as much as possible so choose to go later on in the afternoon, when the crowd starts to disperse.
