New Ferry Terminal for Airlie Beach 10:53am, Wed 10 Sep 2014

From Abell Point Marina to Port of Airlie. Cruise Whitsundays Island Connections now depart from a brand new, purpose-built Maritime Terminal at Port of Airlie. The timetable has not changed - they've simply replaced any Abell Point Marina arrivals or departures with Port of Airlie. Shute Harbour operations remain the same.

The new Cruise Whitsundays Maritime Terminal features convenient airport style check-in and baggage conveyor belts, a large café with indoor and outdoor eating areas, a gift shop and comfortable seated waiting areas. It's a state of the art facility that is safe, comfortable and brand new!

Port of Airlie is located at 24 The Cove Road, right next to town, so it's an easy walk from most Airlie Beach hotels and accommodation. It's at the same end of town as Airlie Beach itself, with the walking path to Port of Airlie connecting to Airlie Esplanade near the Airlie Beach Hotel. The terminal is located right beside the Bus and Coach terminal, which also has taxi access, and there is also a new 170 space car park next to the terminal if you wish to drive.

How will this affect me? If you are arriving from Hamilton Island on the Ferry service you will now arrive at Port Of Airlie. Guests will need to make their own way to Abell Point Marina to the Cumberland Charter Yachts office. If you wish to pre-book a shuttle service please contact
