Mission Beach Tourism & Travel
Mission Beach Australia
Mission Beach, population 662 is a quite tropical 8 kilometre coconut palm tree-lined beach backed by heavy rainforest, and stretches north from the Tam O'Shanter Point through South Mission, Wongaling, Mission Beach, Clump Point and Bingil Bay. This tiny town is modern and focuses entirely on the needs of tourists.
At Tam O'Shanter Point, a cairn commemorates the-ill fated Cape York expedition of explorer, Edmund Kennedy in 1848.
Mission Beach Attractions
Beach and rainforest walks, white water rafting, fishing and sailing are some popular Mission Beach activities.
Popular festivals and monthly markets, together with a multitude of water orientated activities including visiting the Great Barrier Reef attract thousands of visitors to the area annually.
Walks to Bicton Hill and Cuttens Lookout offer superb views over the coastline. From here, bananas, pineapples, paw paws, avocados and mangoes grow in abundance.
Clump Point at the northern end of Mission Beach is the departure point for cruises to the Great Barrier Reef, Dunk Island and other islands of the Family Group, excluding Bedarra Island.
This delightful animal sanctuary and theme park is the only tourist attraction in the Mission Beach area to be nationally accredited by the Eco tourism Association of Australia. Billabong Sanctuary is home to an array of Australian wildlife including birds, reptiles and mammals.
