When we arrived in Airlie Beach, known as the gateway to the Whitsunday Islands, we really didn’t know what to expect. We knew that the Whitsundays were renowned for their luxurious holiday destinations and that they were extremely upmarket, but also that Airlie Beach was a backpackers haven. We were pleasantly surprised with the atmosphere – it was wonderful! We checked into X Base backpackers. Hilariously, the girl behind the counter was from Jersey! They also allow you to stay in your own camper van and use the facilities.We really didn’t spend any time here because there was just so much to do in the town. There are lots of travel agents selling tours so we gathered lots of leaflets and decided over a beautiful lunch!
