About Mission Beach
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.
While you are here enjoy golf, kayaking, cassowary spotting, reef and estuary fishing, rainforest hikes, jet skiing, crocodile spotting, bird watching, market shopping, bike riding, swimming, snorkeling 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.
For those of you with a little more adventure on your mind, a trip to Mission Beach won't be complete without experiencing a tandem skydive from 14,000 feet landing on one of the most pristine and untouched beaches you will ever see, or you can partake in a white water rafting trip in the beautiful Tully Gorge (the Tully River is one of the recognized White Water Rafting destinations in Australia and is only 25 minutes from Mission Beach).
Less than 5 kilometres offshore of Mission Beach, Dunk Island and Bedarra Island make up an aquatic playground that is renowned along the east coast of Queensland. The Great Barrier Reef is only 38 kilometres away making Mission Beach the closest mainland access to the Reef, just an hour or so by boat. This means more time experiencing the wonders of Queensland's Great Barrier Reef when you stay at Mission Beach.
The four villages that are collectively known as Mission Beach are Bingil Bay, North Mission Beach, Wongaling Beach and South Mission Beach, and a spectacular palm-fringed beach connects these four small townships, from Kennedy Bay in the south, to Garners Beach in the north, a favourite spot for naturalists.
The Edmund Kennedy walking track at the southern end of the beach is part beach, mangrove and rainforest.
