South Mission Beach has a caravan park and many holiday homes to rent. There is a stinger net and a patrolled beach (in season). You can hire a tinnie, or sit and enjoy a meal from the small shop and takeaway. There is a Surf Life Saving and sailing club at the end of the road. South Mission Beach also backs on to the Hull River National Park, a large estuarine mangrove system and swamp forest area. Here you can fish the protected waters of the Hull River or spot a crocodile.
The Edmund Kennedy Walking Track to Lugger Bay is one of the most spectacular walks in the area. A coastal walk, and one of the longest (7km, 4 hours), it has breathtaking views of Dunk Island and it’s neighbouring Family Island Group, beaches and the mouth of the Hull River.
