The Perfect Airlie Beach Hens Party Starts Here

Wedding Planning in the Whitsundays

You’ll only need carry-on for this beachside hens party, leaving more coin for cocktails! So pack your bikini and a sundress and get to Airlie Beach for a casual girls weekend away.

As the gateway to the Whitsundays, Airlie Beach is a relaxed resort town with a friendly backpacker vibe. Sun yourself on the sand, explore the walks and national parks, hit the water on a jet ski or boat cruise, and settle in for a lazy afternoon at any one of the local bars. A short ferry ride will have your hens group at Hamilton Island, where you can discover everything the Whitsunday Islands have to offer.

Why have your Hens in Airlie Beach

It’s laid back with a little bit of luxury, and a whole lot of fun. You can spoil yourselves with lavish resorts, day spas and swim-up bars, rest up and relax on the beach, or party long into the night at one of the town’s many bars, pubs and clubs.

Although small in size, Airlie Beach is a hens party destination with a lot to offer. You can choose to have an action-packed adventure, or settle in and enjoy the slower pace of life. Hamilton Island is only an hour away by ferry, providing even more opportunities for fun on your hens party adventures. From here you can explore the Great Barrier Reef, Whitehaven Beach and the other attractions of the Whitsundays. Back on the mainland, there is plenty more to discover within a short drive of Airlie Beach, like chasing waterfalls at Cedar Creek Falls or bouncing on over to Bowen.

Top Tips and Ideas 

Start your day bright and early at the Airlie Beach Foreshore Markets, which spring to life on the Esplanade every Saturday morning. The Markets are held just a few minutes walk from the Airlie Beach Lagoon - a free tropical swimming pool perfect for a refreshing dip before lunch (and cocktails) with the ladies. You’ll find a strip of dining options along Shute Harbour Road, along with other restaurants and bars dotted along the waterfront and throughout the town. If you really want to get away from it all, take a day trip and escape to beautiful Hydeaway Bay. You’ll feel like you’ve landed on a remote tropical island as you soak up the sights from the long sandy beach, or toast to your hen at the beachfront restaurant.

Of course, if you’re travelling a long distance to visit Airlie Beach, then you have to jump on the ferry and head to Hamilton Island for the next chapter of your hens party adventure. From here, travel by helicopter or seaplane to see Heart Reef - a naturally formed coral reef in the shape of a heart, tour to Whitehaven Beach to see some of the purest white sand in the world, or duck into Daydream Island for a taste of luxury resort living.

Baby When the Lights Go Out

Airlie Beach has been crowned the party capital of Queensland. For a town with a population of only 1200 people, that’s a big call! But it only takes one night out in Airlie to see why.

From a game of pool to a night-long pub crawl, you’ll find something to do, and people to party with, seven nights a week.

There are plenty of small bars to choose from, and a couple of old mainstays that have become icons of Airlie Beach. Magnums is a super-sized backpacker hostel and nightclub with all-day drinks in the beer garden, terrace bar and gaming room. On Friday and Saturday nights, the dance floor in the party bar fires up with DJs, live music and other special events… a foam party perhaps? Also bouncing on weekends is Mama Africa, and nights here are as wild as the name suggests. For a Sunday session, you can’t go past The Shed Bar, which is as the name suggests - a bar in a tin shed. It’s all quintessentially Airlie.
