Take the family barramundi fishing at El Arish or visit Parronella Park for the day. The Great Barrier Reef lies just offshore and family diving and snorkeling trips are available. You can also spend a day bushwalking on Hinchinbrook Island or spend a day relaxing around the pool at nearby Dunk Island.
The rainforests that surround Mission Beach are the home of Australia’s second largest bird, the cassowary, and these beautiful creatures can often be seen scratching around in the leaf litter at the rainforest edge on the town’s boundaries. The Cassowary is an endangered species and driving around the local area should be done with great care to prevent harm coming to the local wildlife.
