The Venue


The resort itself provides all the island feels with spectacular ocean views from every room. Book out the entire resort for family and friends. Choose from our unique boat bungalows, larger resort suites or the famous Beach Shack with your own private beach & lawn area (aka the honeymoon suite and ultimate Whitsunday elopement location).

Just a 10-minute drive from Airlie Beach, Freedom Shores is one of the great hidden gems of the Whitsundays. We also have an on-site restaurant, Northerlies Beach Bar & Grill – the local’s favourite beach bar. Great for pre or post wedding celebrations and just a 2-minute walk from the resort.
