The Whitsundays on a budget

A quick list of where to stay, free activities, things to see and the best budget tours on offer in the Whitsundays.


There are a number of hostels located in Airlie Beach including:

  • xBase Backpackers
  • Magnums Backpackers
  • Island View Bed and Breakfast
  • Reefsleep - backpacker price


The Airlie Beach Lagoon is an awesome place to relax for an afternoon or on a lay day before or after your boat trip. Surrounded by tropical palm trees and looking over the Coral Sea, the lagoon is a fantastic place to cool off, have a barbeque with friends or sunbake on the bank.

Cedar Creek Falls
If you have a vehicle then the short drive to see Cedar Creek Falls is certainly something you don’t want to miss. Hidden in the tropical rainforest is this natural waterfall which falls into a deep pool of freshwater – great for swimming!

Bushwalk through National Park
There are a number of fantastic scenic bushwalks around Airlie Beach with some in close proximity and don’t require a vehicle. These often take you through luscious rainforest and up to a fantastic lookout over the Coral Sea and islands.


This 2 day/ 2 night sailing tour caters for backpackers and those on a tight budget, but don’t want to miss out on anything. Habibi takes 26 guests on a fun, social tour to a number of snorkel sites and Whitehaven Beach.

Siska/ Hammer
These slightly shorter 2 day/ 1 night sailing vessels are great for those short on time and don’t want to break the bank. Both Siska and Hammer are mega yachts and offer a fun, fast sailing trip with around 22 guests in total.
