The Cassowary Coast

Mission Beach Cassowaries

Here, in this special part of the World Heritage listed Wet Tropics of North Queensland,  the Cassowary Coast, you’ll find miles of unspoilt beaches including Bramston, Cowley and Kurrimine Beaches, Bingil Bay, Mission Beach, Wongaling Beach, Tully Heads, Port Hinchinbrook & Islands. Beautiful Dunk Island and King Reef are just off our Coast. And the wild cassowaries roaming free. Fishing, boating, diving, snorkelling and extreme sports as well as quiet peace and tranquility and foodie delights are all here in this unique part of the Great Barrier Reef. Trekking Hinchinbrook island and walking trails through the Cassowary Coast rainforests will delight and make for never-to-be forgotten memories. With beaches that stretch for miles you can feel like you are the only person in the world.

The magic of the rainforest unfolds at night – the sounds of the forest, the sky full of stars. Waking to the morning sun and taking a shower in the warmth of the sun’s first rays has to be one of the greatest medicines known to man.”

Home of the Giant Flightless Bird – The Cassowary

Home of this Endangered flightless prehistoric bird

The Cassowary Coast is named for this incredible bird. It’s in this area that you’ll find two of nature’s rare and beautiful species –  that endangered and most colourful of birds, the huge and flightless cassowary and the spectacular, iridescent blue Ulysses butterfly.

Although it is a large, powerful and aggressive bird which can weigh up to 83kg, development of its once virginal, rainforest domain has forced the cassowary into the endangered zone and the locals do all they can to protect this remarkable bird.
