Whitsunday - Places to See


The road winds through Cannonvale with its residential area and substantial industrial area. There are houses nestled in the foothills. This is a holiday retreat which is close to the main centre of Airlie Beach but far enough away to be slightly removed from the bustle of tourism. There's a lot of development but the views over the mangroves is really lovely. Not surprisingly it has become a popular haunt for locals being slightly removed from the high level tourism of Airlie Beach and Shute Harbour.

Of particular interest at Cannonvale is the molten volcanic rock at the end of Cannonvale Beach which gives an insight into how the area was geologically created.
