Mission Beach

The hideaway township of Mission Beach is surrounded by a lush backdrop of World Heritage listed wet tropical rainforest, sunkissed white sandy beaches and the silvery shimmering blues of the Coral Sea and Great Barrier Reef.

A picturesque 1.75 hours drive south from Cairns and 2.5 hours north from Townsville through rich cane fields, banana plantations and historic towns, Mission Beach is a unique and unspoilt haven.

Mission Beach is comprised of the coastal settlements of Bingil Bay, Mission Beach (local business area), Wongaling Beach (business precinct) and South Mission Beach ... all only minutes apart.

Mission Beach offers a good level of infrastructure and services including Supermarkets, Restaurants, Resorts, Hotels, Medical Centre, Shopping, Cafés, Art Galleries and various Tours. Essential services include Police, Ambulance, Fire and Schools.

Mission Beach is secluded, yet it is also the perfect base to explore the other wonders of the region; the Great Barrier Reef, Hinchinbrook Island, Dunk Island, Paronella Park at Mena Creek, Atherton Tablelands, Cairns, World Heritage Wet Tropic Rainforest and the Gulf Savannah.
