Get there

Mission Beach is one of the places that simply needs to be experienced. And not on a short 2-3 day trip. Mission Beach deserves at least a week simply so you can unwind and get into the feel of the whole area. Fun, slow, adrenalin pumping, very fishy and filled with exceptional people, Mission Beach is what you want it to be and there simply are not that many places left where that can be said with any confidence. missionbeach_6 • I’d like to thank the team at the Mission Beach Wet Tropics Visitor Information Centre for their assistance in putting this Spotlight feature together.
