Mission Beach Overnight Tour

Rainforest, Island & Waterfall Adventures

Barefoot's View:

We come with decent chats, slightly non PC humor, propper coffee, propper food, we end up being your mother, your father, your guidance councilor, your tour guide, your mate & we are here to help you make the most of it. We designed this tour for those short on time. It’s a taster of everything, with the options to customize it and the flexibility to mould it to your holiday down the East Coast, or extend your stay in Mission Beach…

Overnight Tour of Mission Beach Cairns

We are all about nature, fun, beautiful swimming locations and love a good laugh! Our tours take a maximum of 20 passengers, to ensure you a personalized tour service and to provide you with the best opportunity to meet new friends and see the Cairns region like us locals do…

Just a Overnight trip from Cairns, you’ll feel a world away in the Cassowary Coastal town, Mission Beach… Snorkel dunk island (equipment inc), take a sneak peak at the romantic Parronella Park, Chase the waterholes/Slide down the natural rockslide (Josephine falls, Babinda Boulders) and lax out on the Mission beach (and Dunk Island) or take a short hike to the lookout!

On top of all that you also can customize it by adding in a half day Tully raft or Skydive Mission Beach. You can head down the East Coast with your bus travel pass or you can choose to come back to Cairns with us. This tour has the flexibility to mould to your holiday, best of all is the other people on tour that you get to share this experience with…

You are visiting the World Heritage Wet Tropical Rainforest on this tour, this rainforest has been around since dinosaurs existed (6-10x older than the Amazon). Discover Australia’s unique landscapes, keep your eyes peeled for Aussie’s Endemic wildlife, like Cassowaries, Tree Kangaroos, Green Tree Frogs… and at the end of your journey chow down on a pac of Tim Tams. Let’s go!

The Best Tour Guide We Have Ever Had

Matty was by far the best tour guide we have ever had, there were only about 10 people on our tour and he instantly made everyone feel like we were one big crazy family that had known each other our whole lives (in a good way!) He was both informative and funny and my girlfriend and I reckoned we could listen to his stories all day long! Keep up the great work guys!

Missione Beach and Donk Island were pretty

We had a great time on the overnight tour to Missione Beach with our guide. He was brilliant and funny. We were able to swim at Babinda, Josephine and we saw some castle too on the way to the pub. Missione Beach is sooooo pretty, I am glad I did this with a group as travelling by ourselves would have been less fun to share. We did a walk to the lookout I can't remember the name of it. and the next day we took a small boat to Donk Island where we snorkelled (as I didn't want to hike to the lookout), food was good, music was good, people were good... We also paid for the upgrade and did the rafting down the Tully which was well worth the coin. Overall we were impressed with the tour, and consider it great value. If you are in Cairns for just a few days this is worth checking out!!!!

We were one of the first people to do this tour!

I came back to do this tour as it waasn't here the first time I was in Cairns. I enjoyed the english style breakfast. The snorkelling was good but it is not the Great Barrier Reef. I did the half day rafting which was stunning down the Tully river and Max told us some dreamtime stories. I LOVE Josephine falls and I didn't realise Cairns had a castle here either. If you book direct you save a bit too, although I think the Happy Travels had a discount on the skydiving, which I didn't want.
