Mission Beach

Adrenalin-Pumping Adventure

Only two hours from Cairns and three hours from Townsville, Mission Beach is a relaxed, yet vibrant beachfront town with over 14 kilometres of magnificent golden sandy beaches.

Here, two World Heritage areas, The Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics Rainforest, come together to form a tropical paradise. In many places, the rainforest literally fringes stretches of pristine golden beach, giving Mission Beach a reputation as an ideal natural holiday choice.

Enjoy golf, kayaking, cassowary spotting, reef and estuary fishing, rainforest hikes, jetskiing, crocodile spotting, picnicking a tropical island, bird watching, market shopping, bike riding, swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving. A day trip will have you enjoying the beautiful Atherton Tablelands, historic Paronella Park, Hinchinbrook Island, Josephine Falls and so much more.
