I am looking to visit Airlie Beach in Queensland, but have no idea about the jellyfish seasons. What times can I safely swim without a stinger suit?
I've also read that the water there is self-chlorinated - is this true? Is it strong enough to be irritating?
I would agre with Kelly, Spring is the best time of year to visit.The water is warmer, no stingers, and you can enjoy the outdoors comfortably.They also have an awesome lagoon area,salt water chlorination, not irritating and great for swimming in, especially with kids. I love this part of the worls, especially beong able to get to the reef!! almost 8 years ago
Agree, Spring is lovely. Clear skies, sunny days, stingers are unlikely (but you're probably not going to get in the water off Airlie anyway as it is mainly mud flats). There's a salt water lagoon (see above comment), which is the best place to swim in Airlie. about 7 years ago
