Shute Harbour Guide

What is there to do in Shute Harbour?

Situated around 10 kilometres east of Airlie Beach, Shute Harbour is simply a resting spot before travelling on to more tourist focussed regions of Australia’s east coast. If you have a vessel to reside in, the harbour can be a pleasant place to while away a few hours; enigmatic sea life graces the water under the glorious sunshine that glistens the shoreline. To really appreciate the beautiful view afforded from Shute Harbour, embark on the short climb to the apex of the harbour and look out across the horizon.

Many who stay at the harbour will have their own facilities, but there are also shower and toilets for public use. A small shop is also open for much of the day, ideal for any last minute purchases, or to stock up on your fishing equipment before indulging in a spot of fishing in the public areas.
