Aquatic Facilities

Airlie Beach Lagoon

The Airlie Beach Lagoon is open to everyone. The lagoon area is 4,300sqm and holds 4.5 million litres of fresh, self-chlorinated water, and is located on the foreshore of Airlie Beach.

It provides an environment that is completely safe from stingers and marine wildlife, all year round. The facility includes a sheltered wading pool for toddlers, a shallow 1.5 metre maximum depth children's pool and a larger pool which has a maximum depth of 2 metres with separate swimming lanes for fitness enthusiasts.

It is built on a raised breakwater, giving an excellent view out to the Coral Sea and Whitsunday Islands.

Lifeguards patrol the lagoon from 5.30am - 7pm in June, July and August and 5.30am - 9pm all other months of the year.

Please note: Council’s recent investigations into the lighting at the Airlie Beach Lagoon has identified an issue that will require the operating hours of the lagoon swimming and water activities to be altered until it is resolved. The lagoon swimming area will be operational from sunrise to sunset, on a daily basis, until further notice. Access to the barbecue areas and all tables and seating remains as per normal summer hours and open to all.

These restricted hours are necessary to ensure the safety of patrons and staff alike and it is anticipated to take several months to remedy the issue.

Council acknowledges this may cause some disruption to swimmers but the safety of our residents and visitors is always our number one priority and we ask that patrons adhere to the direction of lifeguards during this period.
