Mission Beach Green Season Activities
White water rafting on the Tully is extreme in the peak of the Green Season. Raging waters cascading down the mountains that toss your little boat about and dunk you into the cold crystal clear waters. It's a must do for the adventurer! Or just come out to Tully River with a picnic and watch others cascading down the waterfalls in rubber rafts and take some photos of the action.
Don't hesitate to go out snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef as the precipitation is mostly over the land and feeding the mountains and rainforests and you will find often that it is sunny out on the sea with not a cloud in the sky. Ahh life in the tropics! For more Information on Tours contact The Tour Specialists 1300 761 612 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The rainforest is a buzz with critters coming out to enjoy the rain. Grab yourself a rain poncho from the Visitor Information Centre and some maps and local knowledge and head of with food water and a sense of adventure.
