Airlie Beach YHA, Whitsundays and Sustainability

Airlie Beach YHA is committed to reducing its environmental footprint through a mix of conservation and sustainable practices.   We also partner with the community to participate in Earth Hour every year… wanna learn more? Keep scrolling!


YHA Sustainability - Energy

Energy/Greenhouse Gas Reduction:

  • Low energy bulbs keep our hostel well lit, but doesn’t cost the earth
  • Promoting the use of public transport, the easiest way to be eco-friendly 
  • Bathroom exhaust operated only when required, who needs fans on in an empty room? 
YHA Sustainability - Waste

Waste Minimisation:

  • Recycling stations in kitchens, common areas and office areas to recycle anything from printer cartridges to our recycled paper, to tinnies of beer, old clothes, and plastic containers
  • Our swap station gives second-hand goods new life!
  • No plastic bottles or plastic bags in site, we’re proud to only sell reusable 
YHA Sustainability - Water

Water Saving Measures:

  • Our taps and showers are 3 star! Well, WELS 3 stars for water efficiency.
  • The loo? It’s dual flush for ultimate #efficiency when you use the bathroom
  • Signage in bathrooms encouraging guests to minimise water usage 
  • Hostel gardens are filled with drought resistant plants to not only save water, but look cute while they do
