If you are a fan of all things unique – and nautical – you will absolutely love Freedom Shores, located right by the water on the outskirts of Airlie Beach and boasting spectacular views over the Coral Sea. This sun-soaked haven is a quiet refuge that's perfectly suited for a well-deserved escape filled with equal parts relaxation and adventure.
Go beyond the standard maritime picture in the lobby and fully embrace the unique architectural style of this resort, where you can sleep in a boat-inspired bungalow with the added luxury of ultra-modern comforts. Here, you'll experience the very best of both worlds and enjoy a taste of life at sea without having to leave dry land, allowing you to take in the superb views or explore the Whitsundays and surrounding islands at your own pace. Choose to bask in the sun and feel immediately rejuvenated as you relax by the water or explore beyond the property and discover the natural wonders this exceptional part of the world is known for – from the Great Barrier Reef to beautiful Whitehaven Beach – allowing yourself to be inspired by the great outdoors.
