Picture yourself waking up to sweeping views over the Coral Sea from the deck of your boat – except you will be nestled in a hidden valley in Airlie Beach. With a collection of just 10, striking replica fishing boat bungalows and a spectacular deck created on top of the Shangri La – a vessel in General Macarthur’s fleet in World War II, Freedom Shores is set to provide the most unique and quirky accommodation in the Whitsundays, just steps away from a private beach.

What You’ll Love...

The Resort – A boutique boat-themed resort right on the beach

Peacefully set on a hidden valley just 13-minutes drive from Airlie Beach, overlooking the pristine waters of Pioneer Bay and capturing the natural surroundings of ocean and tropical rainforest, Freedom Shores is a resort with a difference and with an interesting story – as well as being the first of its kind in the Whitsundays.

Originally named after The Doors’ song ‘Waiting for the Sun’, the resort is a tropical oasis where a laid-back atmosphere reigns. Its unique bungalows are all designed to look like fishing boats and its facilities are five-star: there’s a pool, a gorgeous deck where you will enjoy breakfast al fresco, a private beach and an award-winning restaurant, Northerlies Beach Bar and Grill – winner of the Australian Good Food Guide's 'People’s Choice Award 2018'.

A nautical-themed resort had to have some pirates' stories to share, and here's one: the resort is surrounded by swaying palm trees - with some coming straight from the set of the blockbuster movie 'Pirates of the Caribbean'.

The Room – Step on board your private boat... by the sea

Be the captain of your own boat when you step into an Ocean Class Boat Bungalow. Elegant and modern, your bungalow boasts a plush queen bed, a modern bathroom, beautiful wooden floors – just like on a luxury boat – and a spacious furnished deck offering sweeping views over the ocean.

VIP Upgrade: Live the celebrity life when you upgrade to one of the three spacious suites, located in the main resort – the perfect fit for three people. Each suite boasts a spacious king bedroom, a modern bathroom with double shower for extra indulgence, a palatial lounge area and a private patio overlooking the ocean.

Food & Drinks – A glass of sparkling on arrival, daily breakfast, a sunset cocktail and more

Start your holiday with a glass of sparkling on arrival, to be enjoyed at the resort lounge or in the privacy of your room.

Each morning you will wake up to a decadent continental breakfast, served poolside or on the Shangri La deck: indulge with pastries, fresh fruit, cereals, bread, coffee and more delicacies.

On one night during your stay, head to Northerlies Beach Bar and Grill between 5pm and 7pm and enjoy a cocktail as the sun sets on the Coral Sea.

You will also receive two AU$50 credits to be used for lunch or dinner at the resort.

BONUS: Staying five nights? Enjoy three AU$50 food and drinks credits.

See & Do – Soak up the breathtaking beauty of the Whitsundays

With a complimentary shuttle to Airlie Beach, you will have the chance to explore this spectacular place with ease. Airlie Beach is also the gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef with its breathtaking coral displays and brightly-coloured marine life. Discover its beauty with a boat cruise, helicopter or seaplane ride, and be sure to take a trip out to the pristine Whitehaven Beach - consistently rated amongst the world’s most beautiful beaches.

But first, coffee: Word on the street is that Airlie Beach is home to North Queensland’s best café: Wisdom Health Lab. Head here for a dairy-free, vegan treat and a creamy flat white.

Perfect for a unique escape

Be one of the first to experience Freedom Shores’ unique accommodations as you soak up the unparalleled natural beauty of the Whitsundays.
