COACH (Bus Interchange Greyhound & Premier):
Be on the lookout for our staff member with our sign. He will accompany you to the reception or you can choose to walk back up the street 100m and you will find us directly opposite the beach

As you drive into Airlie Beach follow the main street and turn left into the Esplanade - you'll find us on the right hand side.

Catch a bus transfer from the airport (Proserpine/Whitsunday Coast) or ferry & bus (Hamilton Island) and tell the bus driver that you are staying with us, so they can drop you off nearby.
