We’re just on the other side, so go straight through these traffic lights, past McDonald’s, then turn left into our resort when you see the BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort signs.

Where is Airlie Beach?

Where is BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort in relation to the famous Whitsunday Islands? Heard of Hamilton Island? Hayman Island? Daydream Island? Well, we’re at Airlie Beach, long known as the gateway to the Whitsundays. It’s on the tropical northern coast of Queensland, adjacent to these famous Whitsunday island resorts. You can visit many of these island resorts on day tours when you stay with us at BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort.

The climate is warm and tropical most of the year round. Locals hardly believe in winter when the sun shines so warmly and it’s often 25 degrees during the day. Swimming in our heated 27 degree lagoon pool is possible all year round. And if it rains in summer, even the rain is warm, so swimming and splashing in our pool and on our two waterslides is heaps of fun! (I promise, the kids won’t mind one bit!)
