My favourite location: Airlie Beach


Airlie Beach is my favourite place with the lagoon on one side and the beach on the other. It is so beautiful!


I love sitting or lying on the grass at the lagoon with a book, a journal and pen, and my iPod.

I love the atmosphere at Airlie. I feel happy, free, and alive there.

I wouldn’t want to live there. It’s too bustling and touristy, but I love going there for special occasions and retreats when I need a bit of rest. Even though it’s bustling, the beauty of the place calms me and feeds my soul.

Since I live in a small isolated town, I also love going to Airlie for the shops and food. It takes an hour to drive there.

I love getting Cold Rock and going to my favourite eating place where there is live music at night.

I love the vibe and I love the architecture of the place with an open layout. I think it’s called Magnums.

One day I would to go to Airlie for a few days or a week to have a writing retreat. I’d spend my days writing at the lagoon and my nights at Magnums.

  1. Airlie Beach really does look beautiful! I can imagine it being a very inspiring place to write. How do you pronounce it – is it like air-lee or arr-lee or air-lie or something completely different?

    I definitely find something very inspiring about open water, especially the sea. There’s a beach near where I live called Southsea – it definitely isn’t as picturesque as Airlie, but I love being there and having a little paddle in the sea usually helps me get over any slumps, writing-related or otherwise. I think it has something to do with feeling the rhythm of the tide, with being connected to nature in some way – maybe.

    Great post and lovely pictures – thanks for sharing! 🙂


    1. Air-lee, your first guess – go you!
      Me too, beaches are my favourite places. They have a way of recentering me. Nature, wide open space, the beauty and grandeur, the mystery, the blue and sparkles.
      So cool you live near a beach too. It definitely helps to go to the beach just for a break.
      Thanks heaps, thanks for the prompt to share them.
