Holiday resorts and residential apartments.

Two kilometres after you get to town, Rob Bredl's Barefood Bushman Wildlife Park, with the greatest crocodile show, plus lots of animals. Rob Bredl's 33 episode documentary series Killer Instinct was screened on the US Outdoor Life Network in 2002. Now alas shut down to planning restrictions.

Churches and religions

I have a page noting those of which I know.

Computer and Internet

Except for Internet Whitsunday, these are all outside the Airlie Beach shopping area. I have a page listing all I know.

Island Resorts

This brief page on the island resorts lists them and gives a few details.
