Tours to the Great Barrier Reef operate daily or you can go Barramundi fishing at an aquafarm near El Arish. The Mission Beach rainforest is the home of the Cassowary, which is Australia’s second largest bird. These are often seen around the perimeter of the town at the rainforest edge. Nearby Tully, is a great family destination. Take a picnic to Tully Gorge and let the kids swim in the river or even go white water rafting.

The beach is a magnificent sandy stretch lined by coconut palms and rainforest on one side and a panorama of rugged islands and the azure waters of the Coral Sea on the other. Stinger nets are provided during the wet season to protect tourists from marine jellyfish. Mission Beach is truly the stuff of which fantastic holidays are made. Holiday accommodation in Mission Beach is plentiful with a selection of resorts, eco-cabins, backpacker hostels, apartments, and holiday homes to choose from.
