Kurrimine Beach

Kurrimine Beach is hidden away from travellers and tourists - so that is a perfect reason to visit. The town is located north of Mission Beach, but south of Innisfail and is a very popular place for fishers from all around the tropical north. The beach stretches for many kilometres, and is not as pristine and beautiful as Mission Beach. A large reef (King Reef) extends out from the beach for over 200 meters, making swimming and boating virtually impossible except on high tides. However, this does provide for wonderful fishing.

Along the beachfront are numerous caravan parks, which seem to be the accommodation choice for most fishermen.

Kurrimine is untouched by major development. It sustains the old-world flavour of the tropical north with larrikins and personalities aplenty. It is a very laid back place, and is good if you want to get away from the hype of the city.
