Backpackers love to cool off in the pristine waters of the local swimming holes: retreat into the rainforest or explore the reef.

Need to cool off?

Take a refreshing swim at the local swimming pool (see map below), or one of the local swimming holes… Bulgun Creek,  Alligators Nest, Murray Falls, or enjoy a dip at Mission Beach (with seasonal stinger nets)


Feeling more energetic?

You can climb Mt Tyson, which is the mountain directly behind our accommodation.  This is for the fit person.  It is a difficult, rainforest covered 4 km return trip taking around 3-4 hours: From the council park, climb this very steep and challenging track to the 678 m summit of Mount Tyson.  Take your camera, because from the lookout you will enjoy views of the Tully township, farms, river systems, coastline and Hinchinbrook Island.

Play at the beach close to your Backpacker Accommodation

Play at the beach (picture: Dunk Island from North Mission Beach)

“Mission Beach is made up of four beach villages linked by 14 kilometres of wide golden beach, a perfect base to relax and explore this unspoilt natural environment. A blend of sophisticated eateries, boutiques and art galleries nestle against lush tropical rainforest. Mission Beach reminds us of how beautiful little beachside towns can be, blending vibrant art and culture with unique tourism attractions.”  (,  linked below)


There are plenty of things to do, lots of places to eat and drink, it’s close to Tully, and it’s a great place to just chill out with new friends after the week’s work is over.


In fact, you could stay here six months, do something different every weekend, and then decide to prolong your stay so you could do more (or repeat your favourites!)
