Not everybody that visits the Whitsundays is inclined towards the maritime. There are plenty of land based activities available to you, from one of the best resort Golf Courses in Australia. From the excellent Wildlife Park to visits of the Conway National Park. There is also tennis and a nice friendly bowls club (darts, pool, bingo, night-bowls for novices). The Whitsunday region is rich in its diversity and should not be missed.

Cedar Creek Falls:
Cedar Creek Falls These falls ar emost spectacular during the "wet season" (November - February") Self drive OR half day tours depart Airlie Beach for the falls together with Aussie BBQ and rainforest tour. Make sure that you bring appropriate foot wear.

Airlie Beach Dining:

Life is pretty relaxed here in the tropics, so 'dressing for dinner' means (for men) a collared shirt (no ties!), a pair of smart shorts with closed in shoes - long pants if it's a special occasion.
We have French, Italian, Chinese, Mexican, Indian, Thai and Japanese restaurantes, plus some excellent Australian fine-dining venues some with European influenced chefs.
Add to this several standards of tavern, bistro, club and pub meals, a Kebab place, several 'takeaway' burger places, fish 'n' chips, pizza, KFC & McDonalds, and you'll understand why it's difficult to go hungry here...
