Our holiday rental is at South Mission beach which is about a 8 kilometre drive from Mission Beach. It's a fantastic house with spectacular views of Dunk Island as highlighted by the amazing rainbow as shown in photo taken on my iPhone. The vast walls of sliding doors and windows bring the outdoors in or moves your living room to outside!
Without many options for eating out, home cooked meals are the order of the holiday. A quick dash is needed as the local Woolworths supermarket closes 5pm Saturday and is not open on Sunday.
Weather on day one is disappointingly overcast with intermittent showers however, days 2 and 3 are out of the box. It seems we are blessed with luck as locals tell that it has rained every day for last three weeks! We get the conditions we ordered: no clouds and 27 degrees Celsius with light breeze. Heaven!
