Airlie Beach

Jemima Durnford
It was a shame to leave having met such a lovely couple but we made our move to Airlie Beach. Our bus didn't leave until 3am so we got dropped off at 10pm and then had to wait for our coach. The time seemed to go very quickly though and so we then got on the bus with our weird bus driver with an erratic attitude and socks pulled up to his knees which as Liam put it, no respectable man should do! We tried to sleep as best we could and then came into Airlie Beach at 9:30. We were feeling very shattered but we couldn't check in until 12:00 so we stored our luggage and went to a couple of tourist companies to look into Whitsundays tours. We looked over the information whilst sitting on a bench by the beach. The prices ranged from $99 - $600 and we weren't even keen on spending $99 so we took away pamphlets to look over and think about what to do. By then it was time to check in and once in our dorm we hit the pillow for a few hours. I didn't want to sleep too long otherwise I knew I wouldn't be able to sleep that night so we got up and having thought about what tour to do we decided we would take a flight around the Whitsundays the next morning so we could see the famous Whitehaven Beach.
