Check-In and Check Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3pm), while the Check Out time is before 11:00 (11am). Hostels usually offer luggage storage in case you arrive earlier or leave later. Make sure you check if luggage storage is free or if there is an extra cost.
Airlie Beach Location: Situated just 40-minutes from the nearest airport, Airlie Beach is also easily accessed by car. It’s a really small town, so wandering by foot is recommended. All of the hostels in this guide are either on or very close to the main strip.
Airlie Beach Festival of Music: Every year a jam session kicks off on the beach and in 15 venues in the area. There are usually around 75 artists over a long weekend in November. If you’re in the area during this time, it’s definitely worth going. One and three day passes are available.
Before you go! There is one other option for older travellers and adults.
Have a look at Kipara Tropical Rainforest Resort for more cute cabin options set in the rainforest just 2km from Airlie Beach centre. It’s located on Shute Harbour Road. Note: there are only private rooms available here.
