Christmas Holidays in Mission Beach

In Australia, we don’t do Christmas like anywhere else. And that’s a good thing! We swap out snow and eggnog for barbecues, beers, and of course – the beach! So, it’s only natural that you’re thinking of spending Christmas holidays in Mission Beach, one of Australia’s most famous and visited beaches. The team at Tropical Property are true blue locals, and have spent countless Christmases right here in our beautiful region.

Today, we’ll look at everything you need to know about Christmas holidays in Mission Beach, why it’s such a great time to visit, and where to go for the best accommodation in town.


Mission Beach is warm all year-round. December is no different, and we often experience lovely days of 30 degrees and higher. The humidity makes for a perfect environment for Christmas lunch outside, enjoying a few cold beverages to cool down.


Mission Beach comes alive over the Christmas holidays, with many couples and families looking to escape the city and instead soak up the nature of Far North Queensland. This gives the town an animated and exciting vibe, with plenty to see and do.


Christmas in Australia would simply not be complete without prawns. And at Mission Beach, the prawns don’t get any better. Freshly caught, large juicy prawns are what our local restaurants have to offer, so celebrate Christmas the true Australian way! Prawns (not shrimp) on the barbie.

Island exploration

There’s always plenty to see and do over the Christmas holidays in Mission Beach, but island exploration is definitely one thing at the top of everyone’s list. Dunk Island is just a quick boat ride away, so whether you’re bringing your own boat, hiring one, or taking the sea taxi over there, it’s a must-visit place in Mission Beach. A hub for native flora and fauna, Dunk Island offers sun-tanning, hiking and the feeling of having your own private island… without the exorbitant price tag!
