Get your Adventure on the Tropical Coast - Designed by Nature
So much adventure to be had - you'll need to allow for a longer stay on the Tropical Coast.

The Tropical Coast - Adventure Tourism at it's finest. Skydiving, Whitewater Rafting, Great Barrier Reef Diving, Kayak Adventures, Crocodile Spotting, Mountain Biking, Extreme Bushwalking and more. All set in fabulous tropical surroundings where two World Heritage areas meet - Rainforest & Reef.

SKYDIVE:
Skydive Mission Beach is the best free fall you'll ever have - take off from the historic Mundoo Aerodrome and land on the golden sands of Mission Beach.

WHITEWATER RAFTING:
Take a paddle on the Wildside in your own Sports Raft. An unforgettable experience of fun, adrenalin and laughter as you navigate through grade 2 and 3 rapids of the stunning Tully River, fringed by the oldest rainforests in the world. Half or Full Day tours are available.

GREAT BARRIER REEF:
Snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef has never been more fun than with Reef Express - a fast, exhilarating ride to the reef, the best spots to see amazing coral and fish, professional snorkel guides and friendly service - what more could you want?

KAYAKING:
Whether you are an experienced sea kayaker looking for a new exciting adventure or someone who is not really sure what sea kayaking is all about, Coral Sea Kayaking has lots to interest you. They employ sound environmental policies and their coastal expeditions have a low impact on this magnificent marine and island wonderland.

CROCODILE SPOTTING:
Join the family-run Snapping Tours on the Johnstone River to see crocodiles and many other animals in their natural habitat - a bird-watcher's dream.

MOUNTAIN BIKING:
For an amazing Mountain Bike adventure, try the Gorrell Track. It’s an old road, forced through the jungle long ago, part of an effort to connect the tablelands to the coast, passing through some of the most densely vegetated slopes imaginable.

BUSHWALKING:
For the serious bushwalker, the Thorsborne Trail in the Hinchinbrook Island National Park is one of the most challenging tracks you will find.
This rugged island has cloud-covered mountains, fragile heath vegetation, lush rainforest, tall eucalypt forest and mangrove fringes. The Thorsborne Trail explores the eastern side of the island.
The Absolute North Charters Ultimate Guide to Hiking Hinchinbrook Island will give you a good idea of what this adventure destination has in store for you.
