While the weather in tropical North Queensland is traditionally considered to be at its best from June to September , we locals believe that the weather here in Mission Beach is at its finest through to October and, although it starts to warm up, even November - December is nice. The rest of the year has its own beauty with the tropical climate and rainfall. The waterfalls need to be seen to be believed during January.

Interesting Fact

Mission Beach Surf Club receives Commonwealth Games "Bermuda Board" - 24 August, 2018

Mission Beach Surf Club has been the lucky recipient of the ‘Bermuda Board’, one of the 50 rescue boards which were carried by nippers who led out the countries’ teams into the arena during the opening ceremony. Olympic and Commonwealth Games swimmer and Mission Beach Surf Life Saving Club (MBSLSC) member, Dyana Brown, represented Surf life Saving at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games opening ceremony in April. As a result of this the Mission Beach Surf Club has received the ‘Bermuda Board’ as a memento of the games. 

Mission Beach Surf Life Saving Club President Malcolm Davison said “it is a huge honour for the club to receive the Bermuda Board. Dyana being at the opening ceremony and so connected to this club made us feel like we were part of the Commonwealth Games. Now to receive the Bermuda Board as a keepsake from the opening ceremony is really the cherry on top”. 

Background: Dyana Brown represented Australia at the Sydney 2000 Olympics and the 2001 Manchester and 1998 Kuala Lumpur Commonwealth Games. At the Manchester 2001 Commonwealth Games Dyana won Gold for the 50m back and Silver for the 100m back.At the Sydney 2000 Olympics Dyana won Silver in the medley relay (back) with Leisel Jones (breastroke), Petria Thomas (butterfly), Susie O’Neil (freestyle) and made the 100m backstroke final where she came 7th. Since retirement Dyana had two sets of twins and moved to Mission Beach where she works at the local Woolworths and volunteers at the MBSLSC.
