Mission Beach Tours
Mission Beach is located halfway between Townsville and Cairns on the coast of tropical far north Queensland. It is home to stunning scenery as far as the eye can see, secluded beaches, and friendly locals who are proud of their beautiful little home.
Mission Beach is a lovely seaside town, boasting several unique travel activities including skydiving out of a plane at 15,000 feet, white water rafting down the Tully River and bike riding through the rainforest and on the beach. Everyone who visits Mission Beach falls in love with the vibe and culture of this tiny town. It is truly unique and a definite must on your East Coast adventure.
The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority originated in Mission Beach and is the closest point to the reef itself. Travel less than 40km on a boat offshore and you will arrive at this wonder of the world. This part of the reef is often secluded and uncrowded, making it the perfect place to discover this magical underwater oasis.
