Watery Wednesday - Jan 2010



Mission Beach
Far North Queensland

Last year during our trip to Queensland
we spent a couple of days at Mission Beach

The unit we stayed in was right on the beach front
couldn't have got any closer if we'd tried




The weather could have been a bit better
There was a fair wind blowing the whole time we were there
and for me the water wasn't very inviting at all

We were only there a couple of nights
catching up with my brother who was visiting Cairns
so didn't really do much

It is such a beautiful place (in the right weather)
and the rainforest close by (world heritage listed)
is a haven for the Cassowary
SO
If you do happen to be in Queensland please go and visit
I will be returning for a longer stay next time we are up that way

Here are a couple of links you might enjoy

'Mission Beach is a small village along the Coral Sea in Queensland, Australia. The popular tourist destination of Dunk Island lies 4 km offshore'.



'Mission Beach has some of the most picturesque beaches along the east coast of Australia, stretching fourteen kilometres in all. It is the closest mainland access to the Great Barrier Reef with world famous Dunk and Bedarra Islands just several minutes offshore.'

  3. What a breath of fresh air for me, as I sit here while the snow is coming down, down, down! Looks like a lovely spot to visit and stay in. And the beach...how I would love to be running along it barefoot right about now.
