In Airlie Beach? Our warm and friendly atmosphere can be found just a short 5 minute stroll from the south east end of the main street. (On the way to the Cruise Whitsunday ferry terminal.)

Delicious, freshly prepared food, outstanding cocktails and a hand picked boutique wine list can all be enjoyed whilst overlooking the beautiful Port of Airlie Marina.

Indoor and outdoor seating is available from which you are invited to explore our unique daily cocktail list and food specials. If the decisions are all too much, then go for our tasting menu or just ask the team to look after you!

The experience at Walter’s Lounge is all about delicious shared dining experiences, boutique wines and cocktails designed to bring back thoughts of more risqué days. Come and visit us at Walter’s Lounge for a taste of something different.

Inspired by the good old days when going to your local was a little bit naughty and the words ‘Volstead Act’ brought cold sweats among many an honest gentleman or lady. We look forward to welcoming you all.
