Bedarra Island is located on the East coast of Australia between Cairns and Townsville. It is 4 kilometres off the coast of Mission Beach. It is part of the Family Group of islands which make up part of the Great Barrier Reef.
If you fly into or are coming from Cairns there are a few ways to the island:-
Greyhound Bus and Premier Bus Service both run bus services from Cairns to Mission Beach return. From Mission Beach you will transfer to a private charter boat for your trip to Bedarra Island (approx 40 minutes)Fly from Cairns to Dunk Island with Hinterland Aviation or bus from Cairns to Mission Beach.
If required, we will organise the private boat charter on your behalf once your travel arrangements are known. There are two companies that can provide this service. Mission Beach Charters and Mission Beach Water Taxi. The cost of this service is paid by you direct to your chosen company.
Important information about Catering:
There are no shops on this tropical paradise! All provisions must be taken with you. These can be ordered through our local suppliers or sourced in Cairns. We can put you in touch with our suppliers to order yourself or we can organise for you for a service fee of 5% of the account. All your supplies will be coordinated with your arrival day and your provisions will go on the boat with you. Our supplier prefer at least two weeks notice.
What to Bring: The less you bring the better. Keep it simple, something for the beach and something to relax in after the beach, and some casual shoes to walk the paths in. You will need to bring all provisions with you.
Birdlife on the island depends on the season:
We have a few permanent residents such as the Noisy Pitta, orange footed scrub fowl, yellow bellied sunbird, oyster catchers, white throated night jar and the beautiful family of white bellied sea eagles that fly by every day.
