There are four villages that are collectively known as Mission Beach:
* South Mission Beach
* Wongaling Beach
* North Mission Beach
* Bingil Bay
Our spectacular palm-fringed beach connects these four small townships, from Kennedy Bay in the south, to Garners Beach in the north, a favourite spot for naturalists. Mission Beach Accommodation is available in all four of these townships and most visitors to our beautiful area find that they have a favourite. The Edmund Kennedy walking track at the southern end of the beach is part beach, mangrove and rainforest.
Several creeks empty their waters at Mission Beach and locals can often be found fishing for barramundi and mangrove jacks. Good fishing is also to be had at Clump Point jetty and the rock wall at Clump Point boat ramp, and for absolute seclusion, try Brooks Beach or Garners Beach at the northern end. It's quite likely that you'll catch a glimpse of the endangered Southern Cassowary in the rainforest around Mission Beach.
