Airlies Beach Queensland

Cruise Ship Pacific Dawn arrives at Airlie’s Beach. I decide I should go on shore to see Airlie’s Beach. There was a shuttle bus that would take passengers to a market and I understood a small tour for $5 and along with other passengers I took the bus.

It was a very short drive from the Marina up the road to where a market was located. I got off the bus walked across the road, and walked back to the bus and returned to the Cruise Ship. There was really nothing to see, no view points, a driver who was not interested in his passengers, and as the large ferry was waiting I went back on that one…a choppy ride back to the ship. I am not quite sure why we came to Airlie Beach at all.
