Entertainment in Airlie Beach, Australia

The best way to spend an evening in Airlie is by joining the Party Whitsundays tour of the best bars in Airlie Beach which takes place every Saturday and will set you back $35. For this rather reasonable sum you will get dinner and seven free drinks. As well as this, any drink which you have after your first seven will only cost you happy hour prices all night.

Kicking off with dinner in Magnums about 6.30pm you will then be treated to live music in Charlie’s Sports Bar and Morocco’s Party bar and finish off by dancing into the early hours at Tricks Nightclub. With loads of party games and excellent prizes this tour is well worth checking out. So, if this sounds like something you think you’re able for, and we hope you are, you can book at Magnums or Morocco when you get there.

If you’re worried about what you can get up to during the week, however, you need not bother. Thanks to its position as a number one backpacker location, the nightlife in the town is alive and kicking right throughout the week with different theme and party nights taking place in the various pubs on alternate nights of the week. For the best ones, ask in your hostel and they’re sure to point you in the right direction. As well as this, many of the most popular bars are located in the town’s bigger hostels where you’re guaranteed to hook up with a host of fellow travellers who will help you party the night away.
