The gardens themselves are spectacular although there has been cyclone damage in 2011 from category five cyclone Yasi which passed over the area. The island resort that can be found just offshore from Mission Beach was also extensively damaged and will reopen in April 2012 after a complete rebuild. These are Dunk Island resort and Bedarra Island resort. It is best to visit the Mission Beach region in the dry season so that visitors are not impacted by cylones. The months from May through to November are the safest times.
