Tasman’s South Mission Beach – Park History

Formerly known as BIG4 Beachcomber Coconut Holiday Park, the BIG4 Tasman Holiday Parks – South Mission Beach is truly located in paradise. Just two hours from Cairns on the Cassowary Coast, it has the closest access to the Great Barrier Reef. With 14 kilometres of white sandy beaches backing onto tropical rain forest, this should be one of the best parks in Australia.

Built in the early 1970’s Beachcomber Coconut Holiday Park had survived through 2 major cyclones.

Today, BIG4 Tasman Holiday Parks – South Mission Beach has been voted in the top 10 Queensland Holiday Parks by Holiday with Kids readers. The park has been given a new lease of life with the installation of premium beachfront villas including an accessible villa, investment in the pool, camp kitchen and playground, as well as extensive work on the gardens.
