Mission Beach located between Cairns to the North and Townsville to the South is a laid back village style town, serviced by the usual retail outlets eg. Woolworths (set out of town) and a variety of accommodation venues,and a small strip of shops, there is a great selection of cafes/restaurants, try the shrubbery hidden away right on the beach and milligans. You will feel relaxed in this little town, There are some great artist living in this area so try to visit the various galleries. If you are really lucky you will get to see a Cassowary (a huge flightless bird, like an emu only prettier) I have always seen one or two driving into the Elandra resort. Definately worth a short visit. Make sure you take the drive along the beaches, you can enter Mission Beach from South and exit North via one of the best coastal drives, or vice versa.

Enjoy coming up here with family. This time we had a holiday house on the beach which was great. Kids loved the beach and we did a couple of trips for other things to do (ie Innisfail pool, Babinda Boulders, Atherton tablelands). Beautiful spot, and the beaches are the main draw card, but if you want to do something different you'll need to drive.

We stayed at the BIG 4 caravan park at South Mission Beach. Fabulous spot opposite Dunk Island. The park was very clean and well laid out, the features were the usual Big 4 standard and was on the beach front. The beach was excellent, great for walking, sitting under the palm trees or swimming. A quiet area where the cassowary's occasionally come and walk through the park.
Great place to rest up and enjoy!

Very small waves, the water was very clean and clear especially in the morning and afternoon before the tide comes in. Visited 1st week of October, no sight of jelly fish and netting was not up yet. Beach was very quiet with hardly anyone and at times had the whole stretch to ourselves.
