Heading sound on Bruce ighway, Mission Beach is an easy scenic drive through rainforest to a little seaside village with nice shops and a good visitor centre. Beach is beautiful pristine North Queensland beach, safe for swimming, walking and not crowded. A great little spot and easy access back to the main highway going south.

What I love about Mission Beach are the stunning views across the water to Dunk Island and towards Bedarra Island, Hull Heads and Wongaling Beach. The sand and coconut palms stretch for miles, the water is crystal clear and on any given day you can find your own peaceful patch of sand to laze on. There are quite a few... More

Beautiful tranquil place with very nice long beach and views over Dunk Islands. Best access to Great Barrier Reef because of short distance

Mission Beach has a wide expanse of sand and stretched for a number of kilometres and is a pretty place. Dunk Island sits in the background and there are a number of good resorts on the beach. The township offers little but it is a good spot for a holiday

We had lunch at a place in the village, and then came down to have a look at the beach. Huge, with hardly anyone around - it was a bit cool on the day we visited though. This would be an ideal place on a hot day.

Just perfect to do nothing and spend each day on the beach relaxing, kids playing. Beach is huge to walk, run, catch crabs, sun bathe, build san castles. A few good easy-going eateries to choose from and a supermarket in need.

Mission Beach is a nice relaxing place to visit, we had a week there in July 2015, we had kids and they found enough things to do with the pool in our accomodation, and the beach which we could swim at being the non stinger season and cool water. The town has a couple of good restaurants, the "Chippy" was... More

There are plenty of attractions and activities: clean and majestic beaches, an abundance of wildlife (Cassowaries, Wallabies, Reptiles, Fish and Birds), numerous walking tracks, sea kayaking, sky diving, reef and diving excursions, affordable and satisfying take-away meals, a large shopping centre, and more - No, I am not a PR for a tourism organisation.

Stunning part of the coast. A lovely quiet village with easy access to Dunk Island for a fabulous adventurous day trip and sky diving in one of the best locations for it in the world. Well worth a visit within 2hrs drive of Cairns.

Although we had intermittent rain we loved our time at Mission Beach. We walked the Edmund Kennedy Trail which hugs the coastline and nibbles into the rainforest which actually meets the sea here. It was so untouched and a delight in terms of flora and fauna. A Stone Beach Curlew was busy feeding on the beach, and although we did... More
