Wongaling Beach is the central beach village with plenty of choices to stay. Accommodation includes backpacker hostels, caravan parks, a large resort, many smaller apartments, boutique B&Bs and holiday homes. Many restaurants are located on or near the beachfront in Wongaling Beach. The main supermarket for the area is there along with fuel and bottle shops.
The local pharmacy and other specialty shops are located near the “Big” Cassowary; this is the only stop point in Mission Beach for the major bus companies on their way north to Cairns or south to Brisbane and beyond.
