This is such a beautiful area, lots of activity, people and beautiful scenery everywhere you look. Airlie is a must for anyone visiting Queensland.

The harbour is not so much to talk about. Quite stiff and boring, But the stroll into town is short so bare with it a bit. And have a swim in the airle lagoon instead.

beautiful, unexploited bush reserve that is worth a look. best to wear sturdy walking shoes and take water to drink, as you go off the track.

Went to Shute Harbour to use the public fishing pontoon. It's a great spot to fish. Clear blue water, lots of different fish were caught. It was a fun day. There's not much else there unless you're departing on some sort of tour from there though. But if you like to fish, I'd recommend you give it a go.

Once a busy and vibrant transport hub for the islands....now little more than a semi deserted shell. However... Fantastic place to live in peaceful and natural surrounds with awesome views. Great bush walks and lookouts, still a transport depot primarily for staff and supplies to the islands. Worth a look.
