Mission Beach

Before leaving Townsville after a very enjoyable stay, we drove up to Castle Hill to see the great views of the town and Magnetic Island:

On our way to Mission Beach we stopped at a beautiful swimming hole called 5-Mile Creek recommended by our friends Lara and Geoff (thanks, guys!). While the water looked very inviting, we didn't venture in, just made a cup of tea:

This was the view of Dunk Island that the other rooms had:

The town itself has a 'hippie' feel with a few cafes, a pub and some shops:
