This little sweet relaxing town was just a great place to wander the beaches and relax in a restaurant or cafe. Cruise the shops and explore the tropical walks. We stayed out a little bit from the town but found it most enjoyable to visit for food and music and the beautiful beach

I loved my month in Mission Beach, do not miss this place. For starters there are so many absolutely beautiful deserted beaches to hang out on. It's surrounded by amazing rainforest and national park and the town itself has great bars and restaurants. There are 4 seperate communities that make up Mission Beach and they're all wonderful. There's rafting, kayaking,... More

We stopped into Mission Beach on our 2 day trip from Trinity Beach to Cardwell on the return leg. A village type setting that covers quite an extensive area from Bingil Bay in the North down to South Mission Beach. It is worth a diversion off the A1 if travelling either north or south. The area is Cassowary protection area... More

We arrived in mission beach, (hoping to see a cassowary) and headed to our hotel- eco village. The hotel has a little track leading directly to the beach- which is breathtaking. The beach stretches as far as the eye can see-... More

A lovely walk along this beach first thing at sunrise or last thing at sunset is well worth doing. People gather at night and will sometimes build a fire from driftwood and sit and watch the sun go down, have a barbecue and just chill out.

Its impossible to access the off shore beauty of the Islands off Mission Beach without the skill and commitment of Bec and Jason from Mission Beach Charters. We booked several days on Bedarra Island Beach House and the entire experience, from the voyage across to the Island, through to the food and supplies waiting for us on arrival, was planned... More
