Always excellent Airlie.


there was so much to do and there were lots of extra activities to do for schoolies


Airlie is a beautiful schoolies destination. I would recommend for future school leavers to go to Airlie for schoolies. Going to Whitehaven beach was one of my favourite things I did while in Airlie, it was amazing. I can't wait to go back to Airlie, with my family or new found friends that I made while at schoolies.
