Travel Directions

Travelling south from Cairns, head for Innisfail. South Mission Beach is about 40 minutes south of Innisfail. Turn left off the Bruce Highway at the WW1 soldier settlement town of El Arish. Follow all signs to South Mission Beach.

Travelling north from Townsville, turn right off the Bruce Highway at the sugar mill town of Tully ----- one of the wettest towns in Australia. Follow all signs to South Mission Beach which is about 20 minutes from Tully.

Things To Do

After a restful night's sleep and a morning walk or jog along the beach, you'll probably be in the mood for a bit of exploring. South Mission, the most picturesque of the beachside communities in Mission Beach offers a range of things to do moments from your unit's front door. As well as walks along the beach you can take a walk on the Kennedy Track to Lugger Bay and Tam-O-Shanter point, hire a range of watercraft, sailboats, tinnies, and kayaks to enjoy in the beautiful blue Coral Sea, launch a boat at one of two nearby boat ramps - the Hull River or the south end of the beach, and if you're lucky you'll see one of our resident Cassowarys nearby.

If you're looking for a meal out, at the north end of the beach you'll find the Beachcomber Coconut Caravan Village offering a small shop for a newspaper or jug of milk as well as café style, eat-in or take away meals. Five minutes drive is the Wongaling Beach shopping area, covering all your basics needs with a grocery store, chemist, news agency, liquor store and your choice of excellent eateries.

Another five minutes north, you'll find North Mission, a collection of boutique shops, artist galleries, cafés and restaurants, as well as another grocery store and the Post Shop. On most Sundays you can browse through our local market, filled with fresh produce, potted plants and local arts and crafts. With the range and choice of shops and eateries close by, you'll find you won't have to travel far to meet all the needs of a relaxing beachside holiday.

If you're looking for a bit more excitement, you'll find that guided tours, activities, exploring the Great Barrier Reef, visiting Dunk Island or walking through our beautiful World Heritage Rainforest is also close at hand.
