Famed for its gorgeous beach and an occasional spotting of cassowaries, this quiet town also offers an array of shops and cafes.

Mission Beach is a small village along the Coral Sea in Queensland, Australia. Mission Beach is now a thriving tourist town that has been able to maintain its small town feel. One reason for this is that the town is spread out along a thin strip of land between the ocean and the hills and farmland behind. This has spread out a large tourism market, and the village doesn't feel as busy as one might expect. Surrounded by World Heritage rainforest on one side and the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef on the other, Mission Beach is home to many wildlife species, most notable is the cassowary.
