Airlie Beach Lagoon

The Airlie Beach lagoon is perfect for spending a day relaxing by the huge landscaped pool, gardens, BBQ’s, kids playgrounds and man-made beach.

The Airlie Beach Lagoon is FREE and open to everyone. The lagoon is 4,300sqm and 4.5 million litres of fresh, self-chlorinated water, located parallel to the Main Street, on the foreshore of Airlie Beach.  It provides an environment that is completely safe from stingers, all year round.
