We found Mission Beach quite boring...nowt going on at all really. In a way our stay here has been good tho as it gave us time to relax and re-charge after a mad couple of weeks on trips and going out one too many nights!
We stayed at the Beach Shack, cool little hostel on the beach front. Beach not very impressive mind! We had a lovely big double room with widescreen and dvd player so spent a day chilling watching dvd's as it was so hot outsitde...really muggy and dripping with sweat after only walking a few yards down the road!
Yesterday (Weds) we went White Water Rafting on the Tully River which was amazing! We loved every minute of it. Absolutely drenched from the moment we got in the raft...loads of rapids, rocks, dips and waves! We went 13k, and were all so knackered by the end of the day...great workout tho! One bloke went in, then we all capsised which was v. scary, boat on top of us, raging water and people all pulling you under so they could get up above the water and breathe!
We ended the day with a swim in the calm water and jumping off a huge rock into the river!
Totally wicked day, great laugh and really got your adrenalin going!
