Mission Beach tropical north Queensland is approximately 2 hours south from Cairns. It is a tranquil seaside village and is the closest stepping off point to the Great Barrier Reef. Most traveller's who have found Mission Beach simply fall in love with the tropical rainforest, white sandy beaches and clear oceans. The view across the ocean leads you to the Family Group of Islands which include Dunk Bedarra and Coombe. Accommodation ranges from award winning luxury to budget, something for everyone. If you are looking for a unique and untouched place to relax and unwind then you won't find a more picturesque area.
Things to do
Snorkelling off the shore, there is quite a good variety of corals.
Fishing, bush walking, sky diving, rafting.
Big Mama sail boat is highly recommended.

Stunning, stunning, stunning part of the world. Feels remote enough but with plenty to do to keep you occupied: skydiving, Barrier Reef trips, loads of hikes and; decent amount of bars and restaurants, but not so many that you feel like it's "sold out" to tourism. A good balance. Waters as azure blue as Zanzibar but cleaner!

Had an absolute blast here! The place was so welcoming! The managers joe and Nicole we're amazing! Anything I needed they helped me with! The drivers who picked me up from the bus stop helped me with my stuff and made me feel welcome before I got to the hostel! I would tell anyone to go because it's the best place to go in mission beach period!!!

Beautiful beach, helpful tourist info. When you walk down Main Street sign says DOG FREE ZONE the sign is both ends of the Main Street. The only town from Victoria to Port Douglas that is unwelcoming to any family that has a pet dog. Wow if they do want tourists then they need to get with the times as so many other towns do it so well. We won't be turning off to Mission Beach again and won't recommend it to others.
