Cassowary Coast, Qld

Mission Beach was the base during the very political “Save the Reef” campaign of the late 1960s and early 1970s which, after a Royal Commission, resulted in creating the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, its management authority and the legislation to protect it in 1975.

Today, Mission Beach is a popular stopover destination for tourists travelling along the east coast of Queensland as part of the “Great Green Way”.

CLOUSTON Associates, in collaboration with Probe consultancy, assisted the Mission Beach Business and Tourism Association with the development of a concept for site expansion in the form of new buildings to house Great Barrier Reef interpretative material, a large deck to provide space for a tropical cooking school and a strategic vision for connecting the Visitor Information Centre with the town centre.
