Bingil Bay Beach

Without a doubt, Bingil Bay Beach, part of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, is the crown in the jewel when it comes to tropical beaches. With past residents being the likes of Prime Ministers and world renowned artists, it’s no wonder Bingil Bay is on everyone must do list when visiting Mission Beach. Bingil, an Aboriginal word meaning ‘a good camping ground’ never fails to live up to the hype surrounding the beach’s natural beauty. With rainforests and palms lining the sandy shoreline, and crystal clear water forever luring the passer by in for a refreshing dip, you could spend days just lazing around doing nothing.

So let yourself enjoy Bingil’s beauty, you deserve it!
