Top tips for hiring a car in Airlie Beach, QLD


Airlie Beach Road Rules and Driving Conditions

When driving in Airlie Beach, there are some road rules and driving conditions to be aware of. Firstly, remember to keep to the left side of the road, stick to speed limits and watch for the speed limit road signs, as these can change between areas, roads, and road types.

In Airlie Beach, the Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) limit is under 0.05, helping to keep you and other drivers safe on the road.

Watch out for animals on the road in and around Airlie Beach, and exercise extra caution during specific driving conditions like nighttime driving and potential flooding on the roads.

The good news is that Airlie Beach's roads are suitable for a range of vehicle types, including 4WDs and convertibles, giving you the flexibility to pick whatever car model suits your tastes.

Airlie Beach's rush hour and busiest roads

Airlie Beach is accessible via the Bruce Highway, which connects Cannonvale, Proserpine, and Shute Harbour with Airlie Beach.

While Airlie Beach and surrounding towns are generally easy to navigate, peak seasons (usually during the summer months of December to February) can increase traffic. Proserpine to Shute Harbour Road is a primary route linking the Bruce Highway to Whitsunday townships, offering insight into lesser-known but charming areas, but can get busy during the peak travel dates.

Parking in Airlie Beach

There are plenty of parking options in Airlie Beach. Locals often use both sides of the Main Road near Woolworth's shopping centre for convenient town access.

Parking on Broadwater Avenue means you're just a short walk to Coral Sea Marina via the Bicentennial Walkway. At new beach entrances, a few unsigned parking spots may be available. However, be cautious about parking on nature strips, which could result in a council fine.

Cannonvale Shopping Centre's shaded car park suits those headed for sailing adventures. There is also a car park near the southern end of Coral Sea Marina, which is ideal for day-trippers.
