Northern beach hits charts
MISSION Beach and Cairns have been voted in the top 10 best regional and major Australian destinations, respectively, to visit by tourism website Experience Oz.
The Cassowary Coast hamlet came in at No.2, behind Western Australia’s Kununurra, thanks to its laid-back, tropical vibe away from the hustle and bustle.
“It is Mission Beach’s lack of commercialisation that gives it its appeal ... providing visitors with that isolated, secluded and exclusive feel most yearn for in a tropical getaway,” the website read.
Cairns was listed fourthmost popular major destination, behind the Whitsundays, Mackay and the Kimberley.
