Mission Beach is a delightful coastal community of around 20klm set up against the Coral Sea and with wet tropics rainforest at the West.
Being such a spread out community you would think that a car was necessary to get around, but the answer to this would have to be NO.
The village bus service operates every day EXCEPT Sunday and Public Holidays and goes from one end of the village to the other every hour and for a small cost of around $4 in 2006, and stops right outside the cottages.
There is Le Tour Bikes, situated about 5 minutes bus ride from the cottages which hires out adult and children's bikes and motorised scooters by the hour, half day and full day.
Sugarland Car rentals are situated here in Mission Beach around 5 minutes bus ride from the cottages and for an excursion to the Tablelands for the day, they are available for 1 day hire.
Mission Beach Taxi service is available 24 hours per day and operates from Mission Beach about 2 minutes from the cottages. They will pick you up at night and drop you back to the cottages if required, after a meal in one of the many restaurants as the bus finishes around 6pm.
For those wishing to just take it easy, Mission Beach has beaches, rainforest, a great pool area at Cassawong Cottages and several places to get a well earned Massage to ease those weary overworked muscles once you arrive.
