A great break stop between Mission Beach and Townsville is a little town called Cardwell. It’s where the main road goes right up to the ocean, there are long van parking bays on the ocean side, and truck parking as well, so leave the truck bays for the trucks.
There’s cafes, picnic seating, a playground, and a jetty where you can spot turtles. Must stay here one day! We had a lovely encounter with a local man, he was cruising on his motorized scooter along the foreshore and stopped us to give the kids 4 Ooshies he’d been saving. It made the kids day as we don’t have many toys with us.
