GETTING THERE

From Cairns International Airport there are a variety of ways to get to the island.

Driving to Mission Beach (Wongaling Beach) and Water Taxi Transfer

Mission Beach is 2 hours from Cairns International Airport. Sugarland Car Rental has offices in Cairns and Mission Beach and can arrange one-way journeys from about $95 each way.

The NRMA have an easy travel planner

From Mission Beach, Mission Beach Charters provides a water taxi service from Clump Point Pontoon to Bedarra Island. The journey across is 30 minutes. Cost is $88 per person one-way,
subject to a minimum of two persons, or $260 per couple return. The boat will
leave you on the beach in shallow water where you will wade a couple of
steps to the beach.

By Helicopter

We recommend Sky Safari for the ultimate journey, fly and land right on the beach. Sky Safari leaves from Cairns Heliport and the journey from Cairns to Bedarra takes about 30 minutes. Cost is about $790 per person each way from Cairns. Sky Safari offers complimentary car pick up and drop-offs at Cairns. They request soft bags on all helicopter transfers. The caretakers (Melissa and Lee) will meet you on arrival and assist with transporting your bags to the house.

Your journey to the island is where the adventure begins…
