Community Groups

Living in Mission Beach offers a relaxed lifestyle free of traffic snarls and crowds. There are many alternative activities that don't require waiting in line. Mission Beach is ideal for young families where children can grow up in a community that values the freedom of years gone by.

The regular local markets are well supported and there is a variety of fresh tropical fruits, organic vegies, arts and crafts, home cooked treats and other specialties available. For those who like to be involved in their local community, there are many clubs and organisations in the local area.

So if you're new to our town or just haven't got around to becoming involved in our community, there's something for everyone!
