Description

Just three minutes to the west of the tourist hot spot of Airlie Beach you'll find its quieter, less known, but just as beautiful cousin Cannonvale.

A perfect place to base the family, Cannonvale is conveniently located close to all the sights and sounds the Whitsundays has to offer. Cannonvale's beautiful sheltered beach is perfect for splashing about with the kids away from the big crowds. There are children's play areas, public barbecues and picnic spots along the water and at the end of the beach you'll find a curious molten rock formation begging to be explored, with rock pools to be combed over at low tide.

As the main residential centre in the area, the town has good shopping facilities as well as cafes, banks and the area's main post office. Launch your trailer boat at the boat ramp at the Volunteer Marine Rescue Club on Altmann Avenue.

From Cannonvale you can easily get to Abel Point Marina or Shute Harbour to jump on board a cruise to the spellbinding Whitsundays archipelago and Great Barrier Reef. Follow the boardwalk around the waterfront from Cannonvale right into the heart of Airlie Beach for a leisurely afternoon stroll or to get a bit of exercise.
