Thank you I have already got this, but confused on the ferries.

Do I need to book one in advance?

Thanks

Well you don't say which airport you are flying into. There are two ferry services.

http://tinyurl.com/7y99628 Fantasea

Both require advance bookings for aircraft arrivals.

Hope the weather is kind to you.

I would go to Abel Marina. the hotel is closer to Airlie Beach than Shute Harbour.

It really doesn't matter which one you travel with, it's about the same time from either ferry terminal. Mango House is actually not in Shute Harbour, it's in Jubilee Pocket which is the suburb directly to the east of Airlie Beach, only about 2km from Airlie.

You'll be one of the first dropped off if you travel by Fantasea and catch the bus from Shute Harbour (when you book your ferry, also book the bus transfer direct to your hotel). If you go via Abel Point, you'll be one of the last dropped off as there are a lot of hotels in between Mango House and Abel Point.

When you check in, say hello to Pam, the manager, she's a gem. Enjoy your stay!!
