There are not too many bars and clubs in Airlie anyway, I guess this is just one of the standard backpacker bar/club you'll find all along the east coast. It can be packed and fun, I guess. The drinks where good and "Australia cheap" and the bartender was really friendly.

Honestly the only saving grace was the promotion staff and door girl were charming and inviting. The bar staff didn't know the prices of the drinks or apparently how to charge for them or basic math. As a bartender I am trying to sympathize with them but when charging backpackers $10 for a drink when it clearly says half price,... More

Currently in Airlie beach, where I took a visit to Mama Africa. We had heard that this was the club to visit, so headed there with a group of girls. The club is pretty small but plays decent recent music. Our tour guide gave us wrist bands to get cheap drinks... When I went to the bar to ask about... More

This place wouldn't play any of the songs we requested even though no one was dancing and we KNEW the songs would get people to dance. The only thing that redeemed this place was the awesome bartender.

Hi, Thanks for your review and sorry you didn't have a great night at Mamas. We generally have great feedback about our DJ's and music but it can be a very tough gig with such a diverse group of patrons from backpackers to locals and regional visitors. Can you please let me know what night and roughly what time so... More

I was back through Airlie Beach recently and it seems that the only place to party late is still Mama Africa this place never fails to deliver the goods. Defiantly recommend that you hit it around 11.30-12 that seems to be when it really heats up. Still a Whitsunday must do experience.
