Cardwell and Surrounds

Cardwell and Port Hinchinbrook are the southern gateway to the Cassowary Coast region boasting world-class landscapes and experiences.

They are also the gateway to Hinchinbrook Island, the biggest island national park in Australia and home of the Thorsborne Walking Trail.

Tully & Surrounds

Surrounded by bananas, sugar cane plantations and world-heritage rainforest, Tully is one of the greenest and wettest towns in Australia.

Mission Beach is truly a jewel of the Tropical Coast and an ideal holiday destination. Known for its world-heritage rainforests, idyllic beaches, island getaways and adventure activities.

Planning a Visit?

The Cassowary Coast is beautiful all year round however the winter months make our region the perfect getaway for “southerners” escaping the cold.

We respectfully acknowledge the Mamu, Jirrbal, Djiru, Gulngay and Girramay peoples as the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we gather. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture and hopes of Indigenous Australia.
