South Mission Beach

With spectacular views across the sparkling blue water to Dunk Island and World Heritage listed Hinchinbrook Island, South Mission Beach is regarded as one of the most beautiful areas in Tropical North Queensland.

Whether you’re on it, under it or looking across it, at South Mission Beach it’s all about the water. Kayak to Dunk Island, fish from the beach, hire a boat and explore, go jet skiing or dive through the coral of the Great Barrier Reef.

Adrenalin junkies can go on a tandem skydive over the vast blue ocean and a little inland you can have the thrill of a lifetime on a white water rafting adventure on the Tully River. You can enjoy expansive water views from several lookouts and of course when it all gets too much, you can wind down and relax on a deserted beach.

When it’s time to dry off, explore The Wet Tropics rainforest on the spectacular Kennedy Walk or pay a visit to nearby Mission Beach and browse through the art galleries and shops. On the streets of Mission Beach you’ll find restaurants, cafes, beachside bars and takeaways.

Accommodation in South Mission Beach ranges from camping to luxury resorts. There are a number of holiday house rentals in the area as well as self-contained units and bungalows.

South Mission Beach is just two hours drive south of Cairns. Alternatively a scheduled flight can be taken to nearby Dunk Island followed by a water taxi to the mainland.
