Theme Park Ride / Attraction
“Mission Beach is a scenic 2 hour drive South of Cairns. Castaways ResortMission Beach is one of those lazy, idyllic little locales you always knew existed along the north Queensland coast, you just didn't know exactly where... If you need respite from crowds, stress, and having to get dressed for dinner, you'll find it here. Hugging the coast for about 15km, Mission Beach is a beautiful wide stretch of sandy beach with clear waters. Absolutely perfect for beach combing. The beach stretches past a handful of villages from Garners Beach in the north to Kennedy Bay in the south. Along the stretch is sleepy Bingil Bay, Mission Beach proper, Wongaling Beach and South Mission Beach. You'll find a range of low key, low rise accommodation, shopping and restaurants, and access to rainforests, beautiful beaches, and the Family group of islands. Be cautious when driving. Cassowaries crossing! The rainforests surrounding Mission are famous for being one of the few areas the large endangered native birds are still found. Prominent signs warn of the possibility of encountering them and be warned, they dash out of the greenery with little dalliance. There is a coastal bush walk and a 10 minute amble from the Southern end of Mission Beach to Lover's Beach where you can fish or swim.”
