“A great lookout”
Review of Shute Harbour

Shute Harbour
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Shute Harbour used to be the main place in Airlie Beach to depart on day trips, but now there is Abell Point Marina, so Shute Harbour is not as busy. You can get a local bus there, which at $7.20 return for 2 is very reasonable. We did a walk to Coral Beach, from the lookout, which is through the rainforest down to the beach with tons of broken coral, took us about 1 hour round trip at a brisk pace. There are toilets but no longer a cafe.

The drive out to the harbour is beautiful. Although once there I found the place quite Spartan. Amenities are few, and the area of the boat harbour itself, is similar to an old dock area. On the plus side, views are beautiful, and fishing is very good, off a designated pontoon. So it's not all bad.

If you're in Airlie, take a drive around to Shute Harbour. It's where most of the boats go from (I think), but the drive there is really nice and worth doing.

This is a place for a quick visit if you want to see some stunning vistas of the Whitsundays. It's a working harbour and gets very busy at peak time.
