We booked into the Seabreeze Tourist Park at Airlie Beach and again were told we could just wander round and pick our own site 🙂 As it was now school holidays, caravan parks were getting a little busier. This caravan park appears to be undergoing some fairly extensive renovations and extensions – looking all for the good. When we were there, they were laying new slabs for more caravans and trailers under shady trees. The new amenities block at the back of the park is fabulous. Brand new, great big shower heads with loads of water pressure, very clean, quite a few showers, a separate laundry room with washing machines and dryers, a couple of separate toilets, clothes lines etc. Now, each shower has it’s own toilet (so each cubicle is combined). The problem is that they have used wet weather tiles for the whole unit making the floor around the basin and the toilet very, very slippery. You really have to be very careful when you’ve finished showering and dried off that you don’t slip. We didn’t venture down to the pool but Damian ventured up to the camp kitchen where there was a TV so he could watch the cricket. The Tourist Park is right across from the beach – but you can’t swim in it because of stingers etc.
These images show a couple of the views from the front of the caravan park.
We took Pepe for walks across and up the road to an area of the beach where it’s ‘roped off’ so stingers can’t get in.
The views from the beach were pretty awesome.
Got a bit arty again:
We went for a drive around Airlie to show me around and get some photos. Everywhere you look is like looking at a postcard.
We visited our rellies and were stunned by their view:
All in all, Airlie Beach was beautiful and I’m looking forward to going back again.
