Mission Beach Tours & Holidays

You’re more likely to spot cassowaries than crowds at Mission Beach

Welcome to Mission Beach, where World Heritage rainforest meets the colourful Coral Sea. This laid-back beach town has a population of just over 1,000 people, honesty fruit stalls line the roads and you'll often have its picture-perfect beaches all to yourself. Mission Beach is also the closest access point to the Great Barrier Reef, with vibrant coral gardens and diverse tropical fish a mere 40km offshore. Whether you want to jump on a boat to Dunk Island, go snorkelling or wind down with a yoga class, Mission Beach is a must-visit on any East Coast adventure.

Queensland Coast Adventure

JULIE · Traveled October 2023
We loved Far North Queensland! The area is beautiful, the people are cheerful, the flora and fauna are amazing. We learned something new every day. Aaron was a great leader! He even had an Australian playlist of music. Another successful Intrepid trip! Thanks to all involved. Cheers, Julie and Jim Barta

Outstanding trip giving us a very comprehensive experience of the East Coast of Australia. Accommodation standards were high, transport arrangements were flawless. We took away many special memories. Our Tour Guide was thoughtful, kind and very knowledgable. He went out of his way to ensure everyone was included in the activities, irrespective of age, ability etc.
