Great place to swim safely while enjoying the great outdoors

The lagoon is a great place for everyone. The pool and surrounding area was beautiful. Finding a park was difficult. Make sure you go when in Airlie Beach.

Kids had a great time swimming around. There were life guards at the lagoon which made it safer with a few extra eyes around. It was busy when we went and not a lot of shade. The ground around the lagoon has lots of bare patches of dirt & the dirt was really hard to sit on. Was hoping for... More

The lagoon is a real credit to the local rate payers. Great free location for a swim and to soak up some sun, grab a coffee from one of the local shops or even grab some Pokémon :) As well as the pool facilities, you also have a lovely view of the beach as well. It's clean and has life... More

Just a big swimming pool full of kids, I'm pretty sure there is more piss inside than water. Looks not clean at all
