I arrived in Airlie Beach a day before my trip to the Whitsunday Islands because I needed to check in at the office. The day was beautiful and I happily wandered around town on my own. What a relief to finally see the sun after such bad weather the past few days.
It didn’t take long to work my way down the main street and loop around on a secondary street that lined the waterfront. Unfortunately, the beach wasn’t one for swimming as it looked quite rocky and a bit dirty. But there was an artificial lagoon in which families could enjoy the weather.
After checking in and receiving a small shoulder bag for my on-board items, I walked to the pier where the boat would be docked. It was 15 minutes away from the main town (around 20 if you walked as slow as me) and I didn’t want to get lost in the morning. With the ocean shimmering like a blue gem, I was happy being out in the sun and heat.
