Charter Yachts Australia is the Airlie Beach boat hire specialist, located at Abell Point Marina, just north of Mackay, Queensland Australia. The marina is the largest in Australia and a premier facility with over 500 wet berths, two waterfront villages and 53 commercial operators. A new first-class resort hotel and marina gardens are to open mid 2019.
Airlie Beach is a coastal resort town considered to be the gateway to the Whitsunday Islands and the Great Barrier Reef. The town centre is a mere 10 minutes walk from the marina and boasts a multitude of facilities including restaurants, cafes, pubs & clubs, shops & fashion boutiques, major supermarkets, sporting facilities and a wide range of accomodation options to suit every budget pre or post charter. For the more adventurous there are a multitude of activities to experience such as sailing, snorkelling, scuba diving, tandem skydiving, scenic flights, jet skiing, ocean rafting and much more.
Just beyond town there is a huge man-made lagoon for safe swimming all year, a special kid’s pool, lots of shade, and free barbecues, all surrounded by palm-fringed parklands. A bit further afield you can explore the hinterland and Conway National Park with plenty of walking paths, look-outs, lush rainforest and seasonal waterfalls.
