Airlie for two nights

My husband and I recently moved to Mackay and we would like to go to Airlie for a weekend in March.

We are hoping to see and island or two and do some snorkelling.

Are there packages on offer that include this and accommodation?

Budget for accommodation is around $150 per night.

You might be better off being based in Airlie Beach with thatsort of budget, there are numerous daytrips that you can do from the mainland.

Currently Fantasea are doing the Outer Reef with one free day on Hamilton Island (you are still looking around $300+ for the two days).

Another option is to call an agent in the mainstreet a day or two ahead and they will no doubt get you the best deal (just be mindfull of school holidays).

Hi Amy,

There are some specials on at the moment at www.lovethewhitsundays.com.au especially for locals of Mackay! Also, one of these specials has a few options like these: www.cruisewhitsundays.com/specials.aspx which are really good value

Have a great time!
