Airlie  Crescent

Airlie Beach is a town in the Whitsunday Region of Queensland, Australia. At the 2006 census, Airlie Beach had a population of 2,751.

Airlie Beach is one of many departure points for the Great Barrier Reef it usually takes about 2-3hours to get out to the reef from nearby Shute Harbour depending on ocean conditions. Near latitude 20 degrees south, Airlie Beach, Proserpine and the nearby Whitsunday Islands enjoy a tropical climate and lifestyle.

Its beach is small and the sea is inhabited by marine stingers, the Irukandji jellyfish from November to May. 

It is almost certain that the town was named for the parish of Airlie, in Scotland, as the name was suggested by the chairman of the former Proserpine Shire Council, who was born in nearby Montrose, Scotland. The official name was Airlie from 1936 until 1987, when it became Airlie Beach.
