South Mission Beach has a long sandy beach that stretches for miles and is directly opposite Dunk Island with water sports area near the stinger nets. At South Mission Beach there is a great Thai restaurant and a local fish & chip shop at the caravan park, and the surf club.
Wongaling Beach is about 5 mins drive, with Woolworths and bottle shop, restaurants and also the water taxi which can take you over to Dunk Island. North Mission Beach is another 5 minutes drive where you will find shops, galleries, cafes and bars.
Search Guide to Mission Beach for some great websites with more information on what else you can find in this beautiful beach town area.
South Mission Beach is about 2 hours drive south of Cairns, 2 ½ hours drive north of Townsville.
Car is advisable if you want to do a bit of exploring around the area, but also as the house is on top of a hill and while you can walk to beach, the return trip is all up hill.
If however, you just want to arrive and not leave, Sugarland car rental does a day rate from Cairns to Mission or Mission to Cairns and there is a taxi service at Mission Beach.
