Its an easy 800 metre walk from the Greyhound/Premier bus stop. Follow the path next to The Boat House to the end, and you will see the Airlie Beach Hotel, follow the path to the right and you will be on the Esplanade, keep walking and on your left side you will see Beach Plaza and the Airlie Waterfront reception.
