  Mission Beach, a cassowary heaven.
by darthmilmo

Mission Beach is one of those places where you can get lost for days at end. There are so many activities that I’m not sure where to begin :).

First, the areas surrounding Mission beach are covered with dense rain forest. You can take one of the many walks. If you’re lucky, you can even spot the illusive cassowary. About 250 of them roam the wild forests nearby.

Second, you can relax at the beach or take on some of the fun activities. Go snorkeling or diving in the Great Barrier Reef. Try skydiving at one of the best places in OZ. Or, simply read a book as you hear the calm waves hit the beach.

The opportunities at Mission Beach are endless.
