Mission beach is a really nice town by the beach about 2 hours from Cairns. There are lots of activities available like trips to the outer reef and skydiving. We spent four days here and really enjoyed it.

What beautiful beach, white sand, very clean, good amenities, plenty of parking. Great to walk for kilometers as we could stop for coffee breaks and admire the view.

We spent a few days in this wonderful area. We loved walking the beach and taking many walks in the area. The full moon rising over Dunk Island was amazing. Peaceful and quiet area.

My four kids and I adore Mission Beach.The shops,locals and residents are friendly, it's clean,tidy and welcoming.Your not competing for space as its huge and swimming is fabulous all year round.Walking the beach,dining in a coffee shop or BBQ on the beach it's our favorite beach in Australia.

This community is much smaller than South Mission Beach, and then there is Mission Beach. This area is small and has most of the bars and restaurants. There are... More

If you like long walks along gorgeous palm-tree lined beaches with safe swimming, this is it. No matter where you walk, there are places where you can be totally alone on the beach, not packed with people .... I almost felt I was on a deserted island at times ... just bliss!
